Vacancies for new councillor

Market Weighton Town Council and South Cave Parish Council have vacancies for a new councillor.

A by-election to fill either vacancy will be held if ten electors from the town or parish write to the chief executive of East Riding Council at County Hall, Beverley, East Yorkshire, HU17 9BA, claiming an election.

The deadline for Market Weighton residents is Thursday, 15 March. The deadline for South Cave villagers has already passed.

If the chief executive does not receive such a request, the local councils will be informed that they may fill vacancies by co-option. This means that members of the councils will elect a new member from those who have expressed an interest in joining the council.
