3.3.1 Resignations

  1. Elected members are able to resign their office by notice in writing addressed and delivered to the chief executive. A resignation takes effect on the day on which it is delivered to the chief executive.
  2. If a member of the Governing Body or a local board resigns prior to the end of the term, an extraordinary vacancy arises. Section 117 of the Local Electoral Act 2001 (LEA) sets out the options and process for filling the vacancy or allowing the vacancy to remain until the end of the term.
