Notice is hereby given under Section 87(2) of the Local Government Act 1972 that a casual vacancy exists for the office of Councillor for the Oval ward in the London Borough of Lambeth.
Election to Fill Vacancy
Under Section 89 (3) of the Local Government Act 1972, where a casual vacancy occurs within six months before the day on which the Councillor whose office is vacant would regularly have retired (calculated as the fourth calendar day after the day of the poll to fill the particular vacancy – in this case Tuesday 10 May 2022), an election shall not be held unless the total number of unfilled vacancies exceeds one third of the total membership of the Council.
Because this vacancy occurred within six months of 10 May 2022 and does not exceed one third of the total membership of the Council, the vacancy will be filled at the next ordinary election on Thursday 5 May 2022
