A casual vacancy occurs when an elected member ceases to be an elected member as a result of, for example, their death, resignation, becoming disqualified, or being no longer qualified to remain elected.

When a casual vacancy occurs, usually, but not always, it will lead to a by-election.

The local authority is required to publish a public notice whenever there is a casual vacancy.  The notice will state the area in which the vacancy has arisen along with any other appropriate information, such as the number of electors required to call a by-election, if relevant.
