The Clerk and the Mayor recieved the resignation from Councillor George Firth for the Fell Lane and Westburn Ward.
The monitoring officer at the district council has been notified and a notice of vacancy will be published in due course. The resignation letter dated 05/11/15 stated:
‘It is with deepest regret that on health grounds and under the advice from doctors, i must resign fully from the Council, as a Councillor and all post i hold within the Council, on the committees and external bodies, with immediate effect. There is a time when you have to put your health first, above everything else and sadly that time has come to me, plus it wouldn’t be fair to the electorate not to have a fully active councillor. I wish you all great success in the future and sadly that will have to be without me’.
