Casual Vacancy on Parish Council

Following the resignation of Cllr Scott Denyer there is a casual vacancy on the Parish Council. No by-election has been requested by the Ruyton electors so the Parish Council is now able to co-opt a person to fill the vacant seat.

The guidance states that the seat should be filled as soon as reasonably practicable. The Council has set the application deadline to 27th January 2024. Please send completed applications to the Parish Council Chairman before the deadline of 9pm on Saturday 27th January
