The Conservative councillor resigned due to work commitments

Following the resignation of St Michael’s ward councillor Joe Pollard, a by election will take place next month.

Mr Pollard resigned after work commitments meant he would be working on a project abroad.

Conservative Mr Pollard had been a councillor for 10 years, first elected into his ward in 2006.

The election will be held on Thursday, June 30, a week after the EU referendum.
