Notice of Casual Vacancies – February 2021

Two Councillor Vacancies on Haslington Parish Council

A formal notice of “Vacancies for Two Councillors” for the Haslington Village Ward has been posted on the main Parish Noticeboard on the Village Green on Monday 15th February 2021.  This will also be published on the Cheshire East website and elsewhere including social media

The notice states that if ten or more resident electors wish to formally request an election, they must do so within 14 days.  This needs to be done by contacting the Returning Officer at Cheshire East Council

If the Returning Officer does not receive a request for an election, Haslington Parish Council is able to fill the vacancies via a co-option process.  The co-option process will be advised by the Parish Council with eligible candidates being asked to apply in writing which will be considered at a Council meeting where Councillors vote on each candidate

If you would like to discuss the Casual Vacancy procedure, please contact the Elections Office at Cheshire East Council on 01270 685922 who will be able to provide guidance

If you would like to ask any questions about the Council or the roles and responsibilities on being a Parish Councillor, please contact the Clerk on haslingtonparishcouncil@gmail.com
