Vacancy for community councillor in Two Locks. Residents asked if they want a by-election

Residents in Two Locks are being asked if they want to have a by-election to choose a new community councillor for their ward.

There is a vacancy with Cwmbran Community Council following the passing of Councillor Peter Thomas. Torfaen Council has published a notice to say that a by-election will be held if ten electors in the ward make a written request to Stephen Vickers, the council’s chief executive and proper officer for elections.

The ten requests must be submitted by 5pm on Thursday 28 July. If ten requests are received, a date for the by-election will be announced.

If ten people do not ask for a by-election then Cwmbran Community Council will fill the vacancy by co-option. This means people will be invited to apply to be the new Two Locks community councillor and councillors will choose who takes on the role.

You can email stephen.Vickers@torfaen.gov.uk or write to him at Torfaen Council, Civic Centre, Pontypool, NP4 6YB.
