A BY-ELECTION for a further seat on Daventry District Council (DDC) is set to be held in May following the resignation of Cllr Kay Driver.

It also comes following the departure of Nick Bunting, who held one of the three seats the council has on the Brixworth ward.

The resignation of Cllr Driver, who was also the council’s strategic planning portfolio holder, was announced on Monday.

DDC has already posted the notice of vacancy and received the required number of elector requests to hold an election.

The notice of electionwas issued on Tuesday and potential candidates looking to be elected to the role have until Friday, April 5 to submit their nomination papers.

Anyone interested in putting themselves forward for either the Welford or Brixworth seats are asked to contact DDC for a nomination paper.

These can be acquired by calling 01327 871100 or alternatively by emailing electoralservices@daventrydc.gov.uk.

Cllr Bunting’s resignation was announced on Tuesday last week.

If the by-election is contested by more than one candidate then it would be held on Thursday, May 2.

This is the same day the Northamptonshire County Council elections will be taking place across the Daventry district.
