Parish Council Elections - UNCONTESTED
4th April 2019


Rother District Council has published the details of persons nominated for the Parish Council in the Elections on 2nd May 2019.


As there were only six nominations for the nine places, all six people have been elected without a contest. This means there will be no Parish Council ballot on 2nd May. You can see the Notice with details of the six people elected here.


The new Council will come into effect at 5 p.m. on Tuesday 7th May 2019, when the current Council retires (the current Chairman, Nick Greenfield will remain in post until the new Council elects a Chairman at its first meeting on 20th May 2019).


One of the first tasks of the new Council will be to select three suitable and willing people to co-opt on to the Council to fill the three vacant places resulting from insufficient nominations.

Parish Clerk
