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

7 May

14 May

21 May

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

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.
