By-election called for a second vacancy on the Ardingly Parish Council

PR2390/HJR/HJR - 25/10/2021

The by-election already arranged for Thursday 25 November in Ardingly, will now elect TWO parish Councillors.

Following requests from local electors, TWO candidates will now be elected to fill vacancies on the parish council.

The by-elections (if contested), only concern registered electors in the Ardingly Parish Council electoral area; residents living in other areas of Mid Sussex will not be eligible to vote. The by-election will be held on Thursday 25 November 2021.

The candidates are yet to be determined and any registered elector of the Ardingly parish area is eligible for nomination. If there are only TWO valid candidate nominations the candidate(s) would be automatically elected, and polling day would be cancelled. If there are THREE or more valid nominations the by-election will go ahead.

Local residents have until 4pm on Friday 29 October 2021 to submit candidate nominations. Nomination packs can be found on our website here:
