Parish council elections: many councils returned unopposed and some with too few councillors

The following town and parish councils WILL have elections in May 2015 there being more nominees than seats:

Axminster Town, Budleigh Salterton, Clyst St George, Dalwood, Exmouth Brixington, Exmouth Halsdon, Exmouth Town, Exmouth Witycombe Raleigh, Gittisham Village, Honiton St Michaels, Honiton St Pauls, Kimington, Lympstone, Membury, Offwell, Ottery St Mary (Tipton St John), Plymtree, Seaton, Sidmouth North, Sidmouth Primley, Sidmouth West, Stockland, Yarcombe.

The following councils will not face election run offs either because they have the same number of councillors as seats, or too few people have put themselves forward for nomination, so all will be returned uncontested. In some cases, too few people have put themselves forward and there will need to be co-option, or failing that, further elections.

  1. Diviani stands in Yarty, which doesn’t appear in your list.
    Please tell me he isn’t going to get back in without facing a vote!
