In a previous post, I asked a question of Formby Parish Council about a complex resolution including a reference to a vacancy.
I also sent a copy of the question to Sefton Council seeking their advice about the resolution the Parish Council intended to discuss at their meeting.
The resolution is reproduced below.
7.1 To formally acknowledge the resignation of Cllr Gwyther and to determine whether to reduce the number of Cllrs to 14 for the present time, whilst formalising the process to re-draw the boundary of Formby Parish Council to incorporate the area known as Little Altcar Parish Council
In the event, the resolution was withdrawn at the last moment but the vacancy formally acknowledged. Since then despite my emails, I have yet to receive any further information and only the briefest of reply from Sefton.
I am have now approached the Electoral Commission with this question as shown in my 'tweet'.
More to follow.
