A NEWBURY Town Council by-election may be held following the resignation of Victoria ward councillor Emma Green.


The Conservative councillor stepped down this week meaning a by-election will be held if at least 10 registered electors for the Victoria Ward contact the council calling for such an election.


The town council issued a notice to fill the vacant seat yesterday (February 22) with electors having 14 working days from the notice to contact the returning officer.


If no such notice is given the town council will fill the vacancy by co-option.

Following her resignation Miss Green said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as councillor and representing the constituents of Victoria ward, however, it was with regret that due to my career I am having to relocate to Manchester.”


Miss Green was elected to represent Victoria ward in May 2015 along with fellow Conservatives Miles Evans, James Fredrickson and Mike Johnston.


She sat on the community services and civic pride, arts and leisure committees while also acting as a substitute on the policy and resources and planning and highways committees.
