News - 12 June 2020
An Interim Notice of Election has been issued to confirm that an election for the Portishead East North Somerset District Councillor seat will be held, after 6 May 2021. This notice has been issued following the receipt of the requiste number of requests for a poll as advertised in the Notice of Vacancy issued on 10 June, following the resignation of Cllr Paul Gardner from the District Councillor seat.
Paul Gardner states that it is with sadness, I have resigned as a North Somerset Councillor for personal reasons. I remain committed to my role as Chair of Portishead Town Council where my priority is and always will be the people of Portishead. I look forward to work in partnership with North Somerset Council to protect and promote positive futures for all Portishead residents. It has been a pleasure working with North Somerset councillors and officers during a challenging year and I wish colleagues well during their continued efforts to ensure our communities recover from the effects of coronavirus and come back stronger.
