Guidance on Filling a Council Vacancy

This Guidance Document details the process for filling a council vacancy.

'A vacancy on the council must first be advertised by Cornwall Council offering the public the opportunity to fill the vacancy by bye-election. At least 10 members of the public must demand a poll to require the parish/town council to fill the vacancy by public bye?election. If there is no demand for a bye-election, the parish/town council will be notified by the Electoral Officer of Cornwall Council that they are free to coopt to fill the vacancy which can then be done at a subsequent council meeting.'
