Councillor Gillian Arney stepped down from the parish council at the last meeting after over 20 years of service. Our thanks are given to Gill for all her commitment to our community.
As a result, a vacancy has arisen on Pitstone Parish Council for the office of Parish Councillor. If any ten electors give notice in writing to the Returning Officer by Monday 3 June requesting an election be held, the vacancy will be filled at a by-election. If no such notice is received the Parish Council will seek to fill the vacancy by co-option of a suitably qualified person. Please see the notice attached for full details.
The position will last until the elections in May 2020, at which point all existing members will be required to stand for re-election should they wish to continue on the council and new members of the community may also stand. At this election, the number of seats will also increase from 10 to 11 to reflect the growing population.
Please find attached an introductory leaflet about the work of a parish council. If you would be interested in joining the parish council, please contact the parish clerk on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01296 767261 and we will be happy to supply you with further details.
