ALLENDALE Parish Council is looking to co-opt a new councillor.

The council has a casual vacancy following the resignation of Coun. Philip Walter in December.

The vacancy was advertised for 14 days, with no requests from the public for an election.

Prospective councillors must be at least 18-years-old, a UK citizen and a elector in Allendale parish.

Applications should be made to parish clerk Helen Newsome by Monday, January 21.
