Casual Vacancies on the Parish Council

Following the resignations of Cllr David Spicer and Cllr Alyson Lister there are two casual vacancies on the Parish Council. No by-election has been requested by the Ruyton electors so the Parish Council is now able to co-opt people to fill the vacant seats.

The guidance states that the seats should be filled as soon as reasonably practicable. The Council has set the application deadline to 29th October 2023. Please send completed applications to the Parish Council Chairman before the deadline of 9pm on Sun 29th October
