Following the Parish Council election on 6 May for which there were only 8 candidates for 9 seats there is a vacancy on the Parish Council. This can now be filled by co-option (when the existing Councillors choose the most suitable candidate from those expressing an interest in becoming a Councillor).
Candidates must be at least 18 years of age and a British subject or a citizen of the Commonwealth or European Union and must satisfy at least one of the following:
- be a local government elector for the Parish of Ducklington;
- have, during the whole of the previous 12 months, occupied land or other property in the parish, either as owner or tenant
- have, during the whole of the previous 12 months, had your principal or only place of work in the parish;
