Around 450 people in Stafford Borough will have the opportunity to go to the polls again – because a local parish did not get enough nominations for its Council.

The previous parish elections were conducted at the same time as the general and Borough Council elections on 7 May which saw close to 100,000 people turning out to vote across the Stone and Stafford constituencies.

But only two nominations were received for the seven seats on Chebsey Parish – which is not enough to form a council.

Now nine candidates have put their name forward for the five remaining seats and an election will be held on Thursday 25 June. The parish has a total electorate of 438 with one polling station in the village hall.
