VOTERS are being given notice of by-elections in the Bicester North wards of Cherwell District Council and Bicester Town Council at the end of this month.

If sufficient candidates come forward, the poll will be held on Thursday, September 29.

The by-elections are being called following the death of Councillor Carol Steward in July.

Mrs Steward had been a prominent member of Bicester Town Council for many years, representing voters in the Bicester North ward as well as serving as chairman of the environment committee.

She was elected to Cherwell District Council in May 2007, and was an active member of the council and its resources and scrutiny joint board. Mrs Steward was also chairman of Cherwell’s employee and council joint committee.

Those wishing to vote in the forthcoming elections must make sure they are on the electoral register, Cherwell District Council has warned.

Further details are available from Cherwell District Council’s elections officers on 01295 221601.
