Casual Vacancy in the Office of Parish Councillor

Due to the resignation of Councillor Jack Heyman due to a change in personal circumstances, we currently have a casual vacancy for a parish councillor to serve out the remaining term of office until the next election in May 2025.

Unless 10 electors request a by-election by 31 January 2024, the parish council will seek to fill this vacancy via co-option. See Notice of Vacancy below for details of how to submit such a request:

Do you have a passion for the village we live in and plenty of spare time (an average of 3 hours per week) to volunteer? You can find some initial information here about what parish councils do and what you could expect from your role as a councillor: https://pitstone.co.uk/ppcnews/calling-all-community-heroes-become-a-parish-councillor-elections-in-may-2021/

When you join the parish council, you also become a corporate trustee to two local charities, the Pitstone Recreation Ground Charity and the Pitstone Parish Charity, so the above link also includes information from the Charity Commission on Essential Trustee guidance.

If you are interested in joining us, please contact the parish clerk on parishclerk@pitstone.co.uk or 01296 767261, as soon as possible and we will happily chat to you and provide a full information pack.

We thank Jack for his hard work and dedication during his term in office and wish him well for the future.  Jack was a member of the Sports & Leisure Committee, the Pitstone Development Area working party, the youth café working party/cafe visits, and regularly organised the annual Children’s Competition, as well as fulfilling his duties on the main council. 

We will provide an update to residents in February on whether a by-election has been called once we hear back from the elections team at Buckinghamshire Council.
