By-election to be held following councillor’s resignation

A by-election for the Welford Ward seat on Daventry District Council is set to be held in May following the resignation of Councillor Kay Driver.

A Notice of Vacancy for the Welford ward seat has been posted and the council has received the required number of elector requests to hold an election.

A Notice of Election is expected to be issued today (March 26) and potential candidates will have until April 5 to submit their nomination papers.

If the by-election is contested then it would be held on May 2, the same day that the Northamptonshire County Council elections will take place.
