Casual Vacancies for District and Parish Councillors


Casual Vacancies for District and Parish Councillors

Notices of Vacancies and By-Elections

A casual vacancy occurs when a Councillor resigns, ceases to be qualified or fails to make a declaration of acceptance of office within the prescribed time.

A Notice of Vacancy is posted in prominent places in the area and is also displayed in Rother District Council's Community Help Points.

The "call in" period during which electors can submit a written request for an election to be held to fill the vacancy varies depending on whether it is a Parish or District vacancy.

If an election is called then details of the election will be found on our Current Elections page.

If no election is called then the Council is required to co-opt a suitable candidate.
