Following the election, the Council has four vacant seats for Loatland Ward. Normally, any casual vacancy has to be offered to the electors in the ward to requisition a by-election, and if no election is requested then the Council may co-opt.
However, following whole Council elections the Representation of the People Act 1985 says the Council should first consider co-options. The Council will consider filling these vacancies at the Council meeting on 20 May 2021.
If you are interested in applying to be considered for co-option, please download the guidance and application form.
