Cllr Kenneth Carratt won one of the three seats on the Kingswood & Hazel Leys ward at the 2015 election, standing as a Labour Party candidate.

Cllr Carratt since became an independent councillor, but has failed to attend a formal council meeting for six months; under legislation his council seat has been declared vacant.

A by-election will now be held, with the Notice of Election posted on Thursday, January 6.

If the seat is contested, voting will take place on Thursday, February 9.
