BY-ELECTION CANDIDATES CONFIRMED

Written by on 9 June 2024

Six candidates are standing for two seats on Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council, after a by-election was called.

Both seats in the Madeley and Betley ward are being contested after the previous councillors stood down.

Voting will take place in the ward on Thursday, 4th July – the same day as the General Election – and the result will be announced on Monday, 8th July.

With two people to be elected to the borough council, the candidates are:

  • KEARON Tony, of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Labour;
  • MORGAN Tanya, of Greenmeadows Road, Madeley, Independent;
  • RADFORD Claire Annette, of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Labour;
  • WHITMORE Jill, of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Conservative;
  • BERRISFORD Mandy, of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Conservative.

There are 44 seats on the authority. Including the two vacancies, the current position is that the Conservatives have 23 seats and Labour 18, plus one independent.

Following a change in the law, everyone attending a polling station on 4th July, for the General Election and the Borough Council by-election, will need an acceptable form of photo identification.

More information about photo identification requirements is available here.
