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

  • 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.

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.
