The resignation of a town councillor has left a casual vacancy in the Sidbury ward.
David Addis was co-opted to the council’s Primley seat in 2011, then stood to represent Sidbury in May’s elections.
He has stepped down for personal reasons.
Council chairman Jeff Turner paid tribute to Mr Addis, saying: “He has been a very dedicated and supportive councillor, who gave every single meeting his full concentration.
“I’m sad he is going so soon after the election. He had just moved to [represent] the Sidbury ward and it seemed like it needed a bit of time to let things settle.”

He added that the concerns his former colleague voiced about the impact on fixed-income households at last week’s budget meeting had led to the authority finding money in its reserves to avoid a bigger increase in its share of council tax (see page 12).
