Due to a resignation, a vacancy has arisen on Alderley Edge Parish Council.
Mike Taylorson tended his resignation after nearly 6 years, having been elected in May 2015 when Alderley Edge FIRST defeated the nine Conservative candidates to take every seat on Alderley Edge Parish Council.
The vacancy will be filled by election if, within fourteen days (excluding weekends and Bank Holidays) from Tuesday, 26th January, any ten voters submit a written request for an election to the Returning Officer.
If this happens there will be a period of time for candidates to be nominated and if two or more candidates are nominated there will be an election.
If no such request is made, the vacancy will be filled by Alderley Edge Parish Council, who will be at liberty to select who they wish, provided the person qualifies to be a councillor.
Any request for an election to be held to fill the vacancy must be in writing and sent to The Returning Officer, Cheshire East Borough Council, Westfields, Middlewich Road, Sandbach, CW11 1HZ.
If an election is called, in accordance with the Coronavirus Act 2020 and the 2020 Regulations, Regulation 6 provides that an election to fill a casual vacancy that would have taken place in the period between March 5th 2020 and 5th May 2021 will now take place on 6th May 2021.
