Forthcoming byelections in principal local authorities, and seats vacant, appear to be as follows:

28 May

4 June

This is polling day for elections to the European Parliament and for full council elections in English county councils and some unitary councils.

11 June

18 June

  • Inverclyde council: Ward 6 – Inverclyde South West, after the death of Ken Ferguson of the Scottish National Party. Term ends 2012, assuming the Scottish Local Government (Elections) Bill is passed by the Scottish Parliament.
  • Stockton-on-Tees borough council: Ingleby Barwick West ward, after the disqualification of Lee Narroway (then of the Ingleby Barwick Independent Society) who has been sentenced to a term of 26 weeks’ imprisonment, suspended for two years. Term ends 2011.

25 June

  • Angus council: Monifieth and Sidlaw ward, after the death of Scottish National Party councillor Frank Ellis. Term ends 2012, assuming the Scottish Local Government (Elections) Bill is passed by the Scottish Parliament.

Vacancies which will not be filled

The Local Elections (Ordinary Day of Elections in 2009) Order 2008 (SI 2008 No. 2857) provides that any vacancy notified after 7 November 2008 in a council due to have elections in 2009, or to be abolished will not be filled. These council vacancies will therefore not see a byelection.
