By-election for Daventry District Council

A by-election for a seat on Daventry District Council is set to be held in May following the resignation of Councillor Nick Bunting.

A notice of vacancy for the Brixworth 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 on 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.
