At an extraordinary meeting of Ledbury Town Council, it was unanimously agreed the Mr Stephen Chowns be co-opted as a Member of the Council.
The Town Mayor, Councillor Daniel Vesma said “We're delighted to welcome Stephen to Ledbury Town Council, and I look forward to watching him apply his considerable experience to this position. I hope that his status as a trustee of Ledbury Youth Activities Support will give us even deeper insights into the needs of Ledbury's young people, which is already a priority for our administration. Whilst co-option was not our preferred route for expanding our ranks, I'm sure Stephen will put his all into representing Ledbury North and I offer him the warmest of welcomes.”
Mr Chowns will serve until the next local Council elections in May 2023 and will take up his post immediately.
Mr Chowns’ appointment means that 10 of the 18 Councillor seats are now occupied and the Council are keen to fill the remaining 8 seats. If you are interested in becoming a Town Councillor please contact the Town Clerk for further information at email@example.com or at 01531632306.
