MID Devon District Council and Crediton Town Council are preparing for elections, following the death of John Ross and the resignation of Paul Vincent.

These elections have been requested by 10 electors in each ward, for one seat in Boniface Ward and one seat in Lawrence Ward.

Should more than one person provide Mid Devon District Council with nomination papers for either seat by 4pm on Friday, October 29, 2021, an election will take place. Otherwise, if only one candidate stands, they will be elected by un-contested election.

With more than 800 town and parish councillors in England and Wales, these individuals represent their communities by making decisions that affect their local area and attending meetings.

Crediton Town Council is a medium-sized town council, with 12 seats. All councillors are responsible for setting the annual budget, attending council meetings and ensuring decision-making is properly implemented.

Town Mayor Liz Brookes-Hocking said: “If you are interested in your town, you can really make a difference by becoming a town councillor. Yes, it can be hard work and we are always busy, but it’s a rewarding and interesting role.”

If you are passionate about your local area and want to make a difference, have skills and experience that will benefit Crediton Town Council, and enjoy being part of a team, please contact Town Clerk Rachel Avery for an informal discussion via email: [email protected] or by telephoning 01363 773717.
