23 March for Prescot Town Council By-elections

By on Friday, February 24, 2017

Two more by-elections will take place in Prescot on Thursday 23 March 2017.

The town council seats, in Prescot East and Prescot North West Wards, were made vacant by the resignation of Councillors Denise Allen and Matthew Allen earlier this year.

Prescot has already seen one by-election so far in 2017, with Joanne Burke winning Prescot East for the Green Party on 9 February. The victory made Ms Burke the only non-Labour member on the town council.

The full notice of election is available at www.knowsley.gov.uk.

Some facts about Prescot Town Council:

  • Town councillors serve voluntarily, receiving neither a salary nor expenses
  • The town council’s role includes distributing money to community and charitable causes, investing relatively small sums in the town, and championing the town’s interests before larger bodies and agencies
  • The town council is different from Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council, whose members are paid and have more influence over large-scale decisions
  • The council is based at Prescot Town Hall on Warrington Road. See the website here
