The latest updates on local electoral information are as follows.

Changes of allegiance

New vacancies

  • Castle Point: St George’s ward, after the death of Conservative councillor Brian Wood. Term ends 2023.
  • Corby: Lloyds ward, after the resignation of Labour councillor Lucy Goult. As her term would have ended when the authority is abolished at the end of March, no byelection will follow.

Dates for byelections

  • In England, all current vacancies which do not fill a term ending in 2021 will be held on 6 May 2021, the ordinary day for local elections. The Cabinet Office has confirmed that local elections teams should not plan on this date being brought forward. Regulations in Wales will require outstanding byelections to be held in a period between 1 March and 16 April 2021.
