Vacancy on Spaldwick Parish Council as Greg Rice Resigns

Steve Fane de salisDue to upcoming work commitments, Councillor Greg Rice has decided to resign from the Spaldwick Parish Council, thereby creating a casual vacancy. The Parish Council thanks him for all his time and efforts in supporting our community and wish him well in his endeavours.

The Clerk has displayed a Notice of Vacancy on the Parish Council noticeboard and website. The notice explains that an election can be called by a request made in writing to the Huntingdonshire District Council’s Returning Officer by ten electors from the parish area, within 14 working days of the date of the notice. If an election is called, the Returning Officer will ask for nominations from the parish electorate and, if more than one nomination is received, will arrange a poll.

If no request for an election is received within this period, which ends at 5pm on 30th September 2015, the Parish Council may itself then co-opt someone to fill the vacant seat.

Anyone interested in becoming a Parish Councillor and wishing to be considered for co-option, if no election is called, should contact Mr David Stowell, Clerk to Spaldwick Parish Council at 23a Thrapston Road Spaldwick, PE28 0TA. Telephone 01480 890065 or email
