Settle Town Council Press Release 17/6/22

News from Settle Town Council 17 June 2022.
For immediate release
Settle Town Council needs you!
Settle Town Council is looking for people to fill five vacancies to represent residents in the
market town. The vacancies have arisen because there were not enough candidates standing
at the 5 May local council elections. Currently there are six serving councillors out of 11.
Successful candidates will work with other councillors representing the community and assist
in overseeing the work of the council and the services it provides. They will also have the
same rights, duties and responsibilities as any other councillor and are eligible to serve on the
council until the next scheduled elections in May 2027.
To qualify candidates must be at least 18 years old, appear on the electoral register for the
Settle Parish and either lived or worked in Settle or within 4.8 km (approx. 2.98 miles) for the
last year.
Commenting Settle’s Mayor, Councillor Debi Rymer said: “We need to fill these vacancies
as soon as possible. With the forthcoming reorganisation of local government when Craven
Council disappears on 31 March 2023 and North Yorkshire County becomes the news unitary
council, there will be great opportunities for Settle to consider what services could be
devolved from the new authority and run locally. In this coming period it is vital that Settle’s
voice is heard and that decisions about our future services are taken as close to the local
community as possible.”
For further information and applications please contact Town Clerk Rebecca Hill Tel: 01729
823617 clerk@settetowncouncil.gov.uk
Deadline for applications will be advertised locally and co-option timetable will be decided
by the town council as its meeting on 4 July2022.
Ends.
