Broadland town and parish council vacancies

All the latest town and parish council vacancies will be listed at the bottom of this page when they arise.

A casual vacancy on a town or parish council may arise for a number of reasons; a councillor may have resigned, passed away, or have failed to attend any meetings for six months.

The vacancy occurs on the date of receipt of the resignation notice or the date of death, although the public notice may be delayed for a respectful period. Parish councillor resignations should be made in writing to the chairman of the parish council and cannot be withdrawn.

The notice published gives a period of 14 days for requests to be made for an election, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays.

If at the end of the 14 day period the Electoral Services Team has not received 10 or more requests from electors for an election to be held, we will notify the town or parish council that they should proceed to fill the vacancy by co-option.
