Uncontested Election for Titchmarsh Parish Council

The nomination papers are in and the closing date has passed. Five villagers have put their names forward – four from the previous Parish Council and one newcomer. Under normal circumstances there would be 9 members on the PC. In this instance, as there aren’t enough people to force an election, the five candidates will become Parish Coucillors without any vote required.

The nominees are:

  • ALDERMAN
    Michael
  • GRANT
    Alex
  • HOOKS
    Yvette
  • PARTRIDGE
    Nicholas
  • PRESTWICH
    Sylvia

The full details can be found on the attached document, below.

Despite there only being 5 candidates, they are fairly well spread throughout the village – from Polopit to Islington. However, some areas of Titchmarsh will not have a representative, including Dryden’s Close, St Andrews Lane, London End, Church Street and the High Street.

Five councillors is the bare minimum the PC require to remain quorate – to make official decisions by voting. That being the case, one of the first acts could be to make efforts to co-opt 4 more people to fill in the vacancies.

There is still an opportunity for more people to play a part in the decision making process of the village. If you would like to be one of those people then please contact the Parish Clerk at clerk@titchmarsh-pc.gov.uk.
