Brotton East and West Casual Vacancy
Due to the resignations of Parish Councillor Dorothy Hogg (Brotton East) and Parish Councillor Brian Hogg (Brotton West) there are casual vacancies within the named Parish Wards of Skelton and Brotton Parish Council. As the vacancy has occurred within the six months ruling of a councillor having normally retired there is no requirement for an election to take place.
