A vacancy has occurred on Hambledon Parish Council and a formal process has now begun to find a new council member.
This follows the decision by Mike Parry to stand down after more than eight years on the council.
In the first instance, the parish council has informed the local election authority, Waverley Borough Council, which has issued a notice that allows for a 14-day period for ten or more local electors to request an election.
This notice can found on this website’s Parish Council page in the document library under Legislation and Planning, or by clicking here http://www.hambledonsurrey.co.uk/?page_id=166
If no such request is made, the parish council can then begin a process of looking to co-opt a new member to fill the casual vacancy. Applications will be invited.
Details of this procedure can be found here http://www.hambledonsurrey.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Councillor-co-option-process.pdf
