A second vacancy has arisen on a parish council after a councillor stepped down.

Hertsmere Borough Council has confirmed Conservative Ben Evans is no longer an Aldenham parish councillor.

Mr Evans represented Aldenham West ward.

A written request from ten electors in the parish ward must be received by the borough council by December 24 to trigger a by-election.

Due to the on-going coronavirus pandemic and emergency legislation that has been passed, any by-election would not take place until May 6.

Mr Evans is the second Conservative councillor to step down from Aldenham Parish Council in 2020.

Garry Walton left the council earlier this year - a by-election to replace him has already been triggered and voters will go to the polls on May 6.

There will also be a by-election that day for a new borough councillor in Kenilworth ward in Borehamwood, following the death of Conservative councillor Cynthia Barker, who was also mayor of Hertsmere at the time.

Two seats on Shenley Parish Council will also be filled following the resignations of Conservative councillors Nigel Heller and Jonathan Bonn.

There are also multiple vacant seats at South Mimms Parish Council.

Hertfordshire County Council and Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioners elections will also take place on May 6.
