Councillor Andy Scott has resigned from the Parish Council for family reasons. Andy said: ‘I have enjoyed my time with the Parish Council. I thank all the team that is the Parish Council for their support, kindness and help during my time as a Councillor.’
The Clerk, Gary Long said: ‘I would like to thank Andy for all the work and thought he has put in as a Parish Councillor and to wish him well for the future.’
Councillor Allen Wood, Chairman of the Parish Council, added: ‘I wish to thank Andy for the work he has done and for his thoughtful contributions during his time on the Parish Council. It has been a pleasure working with him.’
The first step in filling the vacancy is to advertise the vacancy. This has been done on the Parish Council notice boards and you can also download it here. The deadline for applications is 28 December 2016.
Depending on the outcome, there will either be a by-election, which would be advertised on the Parish Council notice boards and website, or the Parish Council will need to co-opt, in which case details would appear in the February Village Newsletter, and on the notice boards and website.
