Parish Councillor Vacancy
Following the sad death of Michael Edmonds last November, there is now a councillor vacancy on Chearsley Parish council. The Parish Council is not obliged to fill this vacancy, but because the next elections are not scheduled until May 2020, it has been decided it will be in the best interests of the village to fill the vacancy.
A formal notice has now been published which states that if any ten electors in the Chearsley Parish give notice in writing to the Returning Officer by February 13 requesting that an election be held, the vacancy will be filled at a by-election. If no such notice is received by the Returning Officer, the Parish Council will fill the vacancy by co-opting a suitably qualified person. Written requests for an election must be sent to Andrew Grant, the Returning Officer at Electoral Services, The Gateway, Gatehouse Road, Aylesbury Bucks HP19 8FF.
