Postponement of Carterton North East elections

West Oxfordshire District Council would like to re-iterate that the only elections postponed following the death of its Chairman, Cllr Keith Stone, are within the Carterton North East ward.

Following the sudden death of Cllr Stone on April 21st. the elections for Carterton North East ward and the Upavon ward of Carterton Town Council had to be postponed as Cllr Stone was a candidate in both.

West Oxfordshire District Council is aware that there may be confusion among residents about which seats are affected in Carterton and would like to take this opportunity to state the correct position.

Only District and Town elections in Carterton North East covering the new North East Carterton development, Shilton Park, and surrounding areas - have been put on hold. If residents are in doubt, they can check the front left-hand side of their poll cards, which indicate the ward they live in.

Elections will take place as normal in all other areas of Carterton and those District wards where elections are scheduled for May 3rd.

The Council has sent a letter to all households in Carterton North East informing them of the postponement. A revised date for the elections will be announced at a later date.
