By-election for Kinson North

Posted on Thursday 21st July 2016

Due to the resignation of Councillor David Turtle (Conservative), Bournemouth Council has announced that there will be a By-election for the electoral ward of Kinson North on Thursday 1 September 2016.

Councillor Turtle, one of three Councillors serving Kinson North, has been a Bournemouth Councillor since May 2015.

Councillor Turtle commented “It’s been a privilege serving Bournemouth Council and the residents of Kinson North but I’ve taken the personal decision to live abroad; I’m confident however that I leave Kinson North in the good hands of my fellow ward Councillors Angiolini and Battistini, and I’m sure they and my eventual replacement, will continue to serve the people of Kinson North to the best of their ability.”

Tony Williams, Chief Executive of the Council added “I’d like to thank David for his contribution to the Council and wish him every success for the future”.

Formal notice of the By-Election will be posted outside the Town Hall on Wednesday 27 July and details of the By-election polling stations (locations and opening times) and voter registration will be published over the course of the next few weeks.
