Pocklington residents have called for an election for the two vacant seats on Pocklington Town Council. Their request was delivered to County Hall yesterday.
Only one person has received a vote to stand on PTC since 2003. This has resulted in existing councillors co-opting their choice for any vacancies. None of the current councillors have received a vote to represent Pocklington since 2003.
An official announcement will be made shortly. Once the election is officially announced residents can put themselves forward for election.
