A Casual Vacancy

Parish Council – Casual Vacancy

 A Kirkby Malzeard Councillor has left the Parish Council, therefore leaving a Casual Vacancy. The options to fill this vacancy are:

1:         If 10 Kirkby Malzeard residents request it by 23rd October 2020, a proper public election will take place but not until May 2021 earliest – see village website for details.

2:         If no such request is made, the PC will advertise the vacancy to Kirkby Malzeard residents with the aim of co-opting someone . Details of this will be issued by the PC in due course – watch the village website.

3:         If there are 2 or more nominees for the co-opted position, the PC will hold an internal vote to choose.

4:         A PC vote to co-opt someone is likely to happen at the November PC meeting (23rd Nov).

A creative, strong and caring parish council is pivotal in creating a sense of ‘community’ and the HJCP looks forward to working closely with the Kirkby Malzeard, Laverton and Dallowgill PC in the future, when the Henry jenkins has been restored to it’s former glory.

So, if you feel you would like to serve the parish by becoming a councillor, please consider putting your name forward now. Your village (and your Henry Jenkins) needs you!

If you would like to discuss what is involved in becoming a parish councillor, please don’t hesitate to contact me , or any existing councillor.
