Current Town and Parish Council vacancies

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 and a notice of casual vacancy should be published as soon as practical. 

A copy of the notice of casual vacancy must be provided to the Electoral Services Team, please email; elections@s-norfolk.gov.uk 

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.

An election to fill the vacancy will be held, if within 14 days (not counting Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays) from the date of receipt of the resignation whereby 10 electors in the parish give notice in writing requesting an election to the Returning Officer. Otherwise once the 14 days has elapsed co-option of the seat would be advised by the Electoral Services Team to the Parish or Town Clerk. 

If the vacancy occurs within 6 months of the date of the next scheduled elections for that council then no election is held, and the seat may remain vacant until it is filled at the next elections, or the council may choose to co-opt into the vacant seat.
