Westerham Town Council Town Councillor vacancy – Westerham Ward

Posted on Aug 26, 2020

Cllr Alex Bates resigned from the Council in July 2020. It is with regret
but with our good wishes that we see him go.
As required by law we posted a notice of a vacancy which allows for
a by-election to be held if 10 or more voters so request it. No such
requests have been received by the Monitoring Officer and it is now
time to co-opt someone to fill the vacancy.
Councillors work together to make decisions on local services and
amenities for the town and ensure the council tax raised is prudently
used. The work can be challenging and rewarding.
The applicant’s name must appear on the current register of the Voters
List or the applicant should during the whole of the twelve months
preceding the relevant date have resided in or within three miles of
the parish or the applicant’s only place of work during the whole of the
twelve months preceding the relevant date is in the parish. The
applicant must not be debarred from standing as a Councillor.
Public elections will be held in 2023, but for the interim period election
to Westerham Town Council will be voted for by the present sitting
number of Councillors.
Anyone wishing to apply should do so in writing to the Clerk at
Westerham Town Council. Applications to be considered will need to
be in the Clerk’s possession by 9am on Friday 18th September 2020
Please contact Angela Howells, Town Clerk on 01959 562147 or email
