Having received a written request from TEN eligible electors for each of the vacancies from the Parish Area, the Proper Officer can confirm that a by-election to fill the vacancies on South Mimms Parish Council must be held in accordance with The Local Election (Parishes and Communities)(England and Wales) Rules 2006. These rules specify that an election is to be held within 60 days of receiving the said request.
