Parish Council by-elections

 Wing Parish Council

There were vacancies for two councillors for Wing Parish Council for which an election was called and one candidate came forward, who was elected unopposed.  This negated the requirement for an election on 6th May 2021.   The notice of the uncontested election is shown on the elections results page.  Further notices were  published for June,  August, September and November 2021 and then January,  February, April,  June, July, August, September and November 2022 for the remaining vacancy, but no candidates came forward.  The vacancy will therefore be filled by a further election which, if contested, will be held on Thursday, 22 December 2022.  Notices relating to this election are shown below:
