By-Electoral in Chippenham-Hardenhuish division postponed.

March 20, 2020 12:35 PM

This is what we now know about the postponement of by-elections.

In a letter to Councillors, Wiltshire Council have said:

"In light of the exceptional circumstances we are facing around COVID19 and guidance received this week from the Government this, the Returning Officer, Terence Herbert, has made the decision to suspend all unitary and parish by-elections and neighbourhood planning referendums until further notice. This step has been taken to protect the safety and wellbeing of staff and the public.

We will be keeping the situation under review and will advise when we are in a position to confirm arrangements for progressing these matters."

In the meantime, residents of Hardenhuish are very welcome to contact any of the Lib Dem Town Councillors or Kathryn MacDermid, our local campaigner for advice.
