Two vacancies Morcott ParishCouncil

Sat, 19 May 2018 15:49 by Susan Awcock

Re: Morcott Parish Council –Two positions for co-option onto Morcott Parish Council.

A person co-opted to fill a casual vacancy on a Parish Council must still fulfil the same criteria as a person being formally nominated for a candidate at an election. This means that the person must either be on the 2018 Register of Electors for Morcott and/or during the previous 12 months prior to appointment by co-option, either have occupied as owner or tenant any land or premises in the parish, or had their principal or only place of work in the parish, or have resided either in the parish or within 3 miles of the parish boundary. More »

The person should also not be disqualified for election under Section 80 of the Local Government Act 1972. Broadly, this relates to holding a paid office under the Town Council, bankruptcy, having been sentenced to a term of imprisonment of not less than 3 months without the option of a fine during the 5 years preceding the co-option, or being disqualified under any enactment relating to corrupt or illegal practices.

Council will consider applications to fill the vacancies. Interested parties should apply in writing to the clerk by email to: clerk@morcottparishcouncil.org.uk by 5 pm 12th JUNE 2018. There are no particular guidelines for co-option, but to help the process, it would be useful to have some idea why the applicant would like to be a member of Morcott Parish Council, their specific interest in the community and any local council knowledge.

The Clerk to the Council. » Less
