What is it? Co-option is the means by which appointments are made for ward councillor positions unfilled after the Local Elections. This usually arises because there were not enough candidates at the election for the positions available. Once co-opted, a councillor has the same powers and responsibilities as one that has been elected.
After this election, co-option is possible in Bringewood, Clee View and Rockspring wards.
How does it work? The process is managed by Ludlow Town Council, via the Town Clerk. Unlike the actual Local Election, Shropshire Council and the Returning Officer are NOT involved.
Please return your completed application by 5pm, 16th June 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org or The Guildhall, Mill Street Ludlow SY8 1AZ
