Community Council Vacancies

This page will advertise any vacancies that arise within the Community Council – for Councillors or staff.

If vacancies for Councillors arise we first have to publish a notice asking residents if they want to trigger a BY-ELECTION; TEN residents have to respond saying they do want one for a by-election to go ahead. If 10 residents do not request a by-election we move on to the CO-OPTION phase. In this phase eligible people who would like to join the Council fill in an application form. The forms go through to a meeting of the full Council and Councillors vote on who they would like to co-opt. A leaflet explaining a bit more about how it all works is attached here for you.

  • Gresford West has FIVE Council places
  • Gresford East has THREE Council places
  • Marford and Hoseley has SIX Council places



GCC West Vacancy Notice - Election

Come and join us! We have a vacancy


Notice is hereby given that a vacancy exists in the Office of Councillor for the West Ward of the Community of Gresford.

An Election to fill this vacancy will be held if, within FOURTEEN DAYS (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays) after the first publication of this Notice, a request for such an election is made in writing to the Returning Officer, Electoral Office, Wrexham County Borough Council, The Guildhall, Wrexham, by TEN electors for the Community Ward.

If no such Notice requiring the holding of an Election is given then the vacancy will be filled by the Community Council by co-option.

Dated: 15/03/2023
Clerk to the Community Council


This is the formal notice we are required by law to publish. If TEN residents demand it within two weeks, an election to fill this vacancy must be held. We have posted a form you can download and use if you wish for this purpose – see below. Holding an election will cost the Community Council several thousand pounds.

If the community does not demand an election the vacancy will be advertised again and local people will apply. Councillors will then vote on who to take onto the Council to fill the vacancy. This is called ‘CO-OPTION’.

Contact the Clerk if you need any help with this – clerk@gresfordcommunitycouncil.gov.uk
