We were sad to receive a letter of resignation from Cllr Patrick Smith. Patrick has made a significant contribution to the PC since joining, particularly in planning matters. During the development of the Local Planning Document - Gedling's roadmap for development and house building across the borough - Patrick devoted many hours to scouring the documentation and attending meetings to make sure that Woodborough's best interests were represented. His attention to detail and expertise will be much missed.
A vacancy now exists and we will follow the procedure required by the Local Government Act 1972. Please note that if an election is needed, that election will take place in May 2021 in accordance with coronavirus regulations.
Details can be found on the Vacancy Notice.
