A by-election has been called for a vacant rural seat on Daventry District Council.

The election will be held in May following the resignation of Councillor Nick Bunting, who held one of the seats for the Brixworth ward.

A notice of vacancy for the Brixworth seat has been posted by DDC and the council has already 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 by more than one candidate then it would be held on May 2.

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