Current Town and Parish Casual Vacancies

Listed below are the current casual vacancies for the Parish or Town Council's within Torridge. A Town or Parish vacancy may arise for a number of reasons for example, a Councillor has resigned, passed away or they have failed to attend any meetings for 6 months.

All resignations must be made in writing to the Chairperson of the Town or Parish Council. Once received that resignation cannot be withdrawn. When a vacancy occurs the Parish Clerk must notify Electoral Services at Torridge District Council with the details of which Councillor has caused the vacancy.

The vacancy must then be advertised in the Town or Parish, usually on parish notice boards, for a period of 14 working days excluding dies-non (eg bank holidays); during this time an election can be requested by 10 electors from the electoral area in writing to the Electoral Services at Torridge District Council. The request must be received by the last date on the notice.
