Councillor Vacancy

Date: 20th May, 2020

Under Section 85 of the Local Governement Act 1972, any Councillor who fails to attend a meeting for 6 consecutive months ceases to be a Member of the Council.

Under the new legislation brought in for Local Governement meetings during the Covid-19 crisis, the rule has not been relaxed.
Therefore, Kevin Farrer who represented St Mary’s Ward on the Town Council, ceases to be a Member of the Town Council as he has not attended a meeting since 8 November 2019.
