Only one candidate has been confirmed for the vacant seat on South Woodham Ferrers town council, which means the seat is uncontested and the election on 5 May has therefore been cancelled.
Terry Sherlock (Liberal Democrats) is duly elected as a councillor for the Elmwood ward.
The vacancy followed the resignation of a sitting councillor.
Your town council is responsible for providing and overseeing local services, such as looking after the environment and open spaces, and considering plans for development, and your councillor looks after concerns and issues in your neighbourhood.
You can find more information about your council and elections on the council website.
