NewsSherwoodSherwood by-election called after councillor resigns

Voters in Sherwood face a trip to the polls in May following the resignation of its sitting councillor 

Alex Ball was councillor for the Sherwood ward, but has now decided to step down from his role.

Councillor Ball began serving Sherwood as a councillor in May 2011 but due to a change in jobs, feels it’s no longer feasible for him to dedicate the time required for his councillor duties.

In his resignation letter to Chief Executive Ian Curryer, he said: “he didn’t want to let down Sherwood residents or fellow councillors and so it was appropriate for him to step aside”.

The by-election will take place in Sherwood ward on Thursday 4 May 2017.
