Parish councillor resignations should be made in writing to the Chairman of the Parish Council. The casual vacancy occurs on the date of receipt of the resignation notice.
In the event of the death of a Parish Councillor, the casual vacancy occurs at the date of death. The Public Notice may also be delayed for a respectful period.
The Notice 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 Elections Team at South Norfolk has not received 10 or more requests from electors for an election to be held, we will notify the Parish Council that they should proceed to fill the vacancy by co-option.
If you are interested in becoming a Town or Parish Councillor, please contact your local Town or Parish council Clerk.
