Fresh election for Sidmouth Town Council seats after no candidates stand

A fresh election will be held for four seats on Sidmouth Town Council after no candidates stood for them in the local elections. 

All of the local authority’s current councillors were automatically elected as too few people competed for the positions.

It is likely that if anyone stands for election this time, they will also be immediately appointed.

Nomination papers must be submitted by 25 May, and if any election is contested the poll will take place on 22 June.

One councillor is to be elected for the Sidmouth East ward, two for Sidmouth Sidford Village, and one for Sidmouth West.
