Following Cllr Brian Hannah’s resignation from the District Council through ill-health, arrangements will now be made to hold a by-election for the Sheringham North ward on North Norfolk District Council.

Cllr Hannah has represented Sheringham on North Norfolk District Council for 22 years, and throughout that time has been a champion of community safety issues on the Council.

In paying tribute to Cllr Hannah’s service to the community and District Council, Cllr Sarah Bütikofer Leader of the Council and the Liberal Democrat Group said: “Brian has made a very significant contribution to the life of the District Council over the past 22 years, helping many people in his local community of Sheringham and across the wider District. It has been an honour and a pleasure to work with Brian, and I know many across the Council will miss his presence greatly in the Council Chamber. I know it has been a difficult decision for Brian to stand down from his position as a councillor and I would like to thank him for his years of dedicated service”.

Arrangements are now being made to hold a by-election to fill the vacancy for a District Councillor for the Sheringham North ward. Notices of election will be published today (24th October), inviting nominations for the vacancy and if contested a by-election will be held on Thursday 28th November. If the election is contested, poll cards will be delivered to all registered electors within the Sheringham North ward advising them of the by-election including arrangements to request a postal or proxy vote and of the polling station for the ward which is at St Andrew’s Church Hall, Cromer Road, Sheringham.
