The Conservatives have vacancies on Braintree district council, Witham West ward, after the resignation “in disgust” of Bill Rose, on Cheshire county council and the new Cheshire East shadow unitary council following the death of Bert Grange who represented Knutsford division, on Harborough borough council, Broughton Astley – Broughton ward, after the death of Christopher Sidey, on Hillingdon borough council, West Ruislip ward, after the death of Solveig Stone, on Kent county council, Herne Bay division, after the death of John Law, on Redcar and Cleveland council, Guisborough ward, after the death of Anne Franklin, and on Suffolk county council and Suffolk Coastal district council due to the resignation of Ben Redsell who represented Woodbridge Riverside ward on the district council and Woodbridge division on the county council. There is likely also to be a vacancy on Westminster city council, Lancaster Gate ward, should Sir Simon Milton be approved as Deputy Mayor of London for Policy and Planning.

There are Labour held vacancies on Bristol city council in St George West ward, after the death of John Deasy, on Greenwich borough council, Plumstead ward, after the death of Kanta Patel, and on Stevenage borough council, Pin Green ward, after the death of Reg Smith.

The Liberal Democrats have a vacancy on West Lindsey district council, Middle Rasen ward, after the resignation of Gary Fenwick.

The Green Party has a vacancy in Leeds city council, Farnley and Wortley ward, due to the resignation of Luke Russell. Sedgefield district council‘s Sedgefield ward has a vacancy after the death of Independent councillor Jim Wayman. The impending resignation of Colin Auty from Kirklees borough council, previously reported here, now looks unlikely to take place as Cllr Auty has decided to continue as an Independent councillor.
