Dear Mrs Robinson
Election of a Parish Councillor –
Parish of Little Bentley
I refer to your letter dated 21 October and confirm that, as you are aware, The Local Government Act 1972 makes it necessary for your Council to give public notice of the existence of the casual vacancy and to take the following steps to give such notice:-
By posting the notice in some conspicuous place or places within the Parish (e.g. parish notice boards, local post office etc);
In such other manner, if any, as appears to the Parish Council to be desirable for giving publicity to the notice;
A draft notice is enclosed. If, within 14 days, (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays) of the date of publication of the notice, the Returning Officer receives notice from ten electors for the electoral area claiming a poll, then the normal election procedure, the notice of election, notice of poll and the poll (if two or more nominations are received) will be set in motion. If no poll is claimed then the Parish Council must fill the vacancy by co-option.
Please be good enough to advise the date on which public notice of the vacancy was posted. I will, in due course, notify you whether or not a poll has been requested within the prescribed period.
