‘notice of result of uncontested election’ which is published below.
The number of persons elected is short of the number of seats on the council, but enough persons have been elected to constitute a quorum (i.e. one third of the whole number of members, subject to a minimum of three). The newly elected members should therefore co-opt persons to fill the remaining vacancy or vacancies. The council may do this at a parish council meeting after Tuesday 9 May 2023. It is good practice to advertise for expressions of interest in being co-opted. There is no requirement to advertise a notice of vacancy as you would for a casual vacancy.
The Oxfordshire Association of Local Councils has produced a good practice guide for selecting co-optees which is available in the Members Area of its website www.oalc.org.uk
