Town Councillor Vacancy filled by Co-option

At the meeting of the Town Council on Wednesday 18 October 2023, the  Councillor vacancy in the Lancashire Ward was filled by co-option.

The vacancy was filled by Beverley (Bev) Bennett of 34 Fir Tree Crescent SK16 5EH.

The Town Council had published notices inviting electors to petition for a by-election to take place. In the absence of the requisite number of residents requesting a by-election, the Town Council had the power to co-opt persons to fill the vacancy.

The Town Council invited residents to seek co-option and those residents who expressed an interest were invited to deliver a presentation at the Town Council meeting prior to the Town Council making their decision.

The Town Council now has a full complement of 9 members.

Mike Iveson,

Clerk to the Town Council
