A by-election could be soon be called in Carlton, after a Labour councillor announced his decision to resign earlier this week.

Councillor Gary Gregory was an elected member for the Cavendish ward within Gedling Borough before stepping down.

Cavendish covers the area around Cavendish and Coningswath Road and up to Carlton Hill.

Councillor Gregory was elected back in 2019 along with fellow Cavendish councillor Liz Clunie.

Gregory secured 704 votes with Clunie achieving 695, seeing off Conservative candidate George Millar who attracted 314 votes.

A notice announcing the vacancy was posted on Tuesday (November 16).

It reads: In order for the above vacancy to be filled prior to the next scheduled election (May 2023), it will be necessary to convene a by-election.

For this to happen, two local government electors within the Gedling Borough area (not just from the ward) must give written notice requesting a by-election

“If two requests for a by-election are received, the by-election must take place within 35 working days of the date of receipt of the requests.”
