Following the resignation of Councillor Kirk (due to a change in personal circumstances) we have one vacant seat on the parish council.  Please find below the official Notice of Vacancy. Unless 10 electors request a by-election within 14 working days, the parish council will fill this vacancy via co-option at the 26 May 2022 annual parish council meeting.

The new member will serve out the remaining term of office until the next election.

The corporate body of the parish council also acts as Sole Trustee to two local charities.

Initial information about the role of parish councillors, and charity trustees, is available on our website www.pitstone.co.uk.
