The Council has a casual vacancy for a parish councillor after Rob Elliott stood down due to work commitments. The Parish Council is grateful to Rob for all of his contributions over the last few years.
Notice of the vacancy has been given to Rushcliffe Borough Council. If no election is called the Parish Council will invite expressions of interest in June and seek to co-opt a new councillor at the July meeting of the Parish Council.
