Over ward councillor, Yvonne Bancroft, resigned from the Council on Friday on the grounds of personal reasons. Yvonne, an independent councillor, was first elected in the February 2013 by-election and was re-elected in May 2015.
Yvonne served on numerous committees and working groups, was Chairman of the Town Council’s Planning Committee and Deputy Chairman of the Neighbourhood Planning Committee.
Cllr Jan Nicholson, Mayor of Knutsford, said “It was with sadness that I received Yvonne’s resignation. I would like to thank Yvonne on behalf of the whole council for her dedicated contributions as a councillor over the past four years and wish her all the best for the future.”
The notice of vacancy has now been posted, giving electors fourteen working days to request a by-election to fill the casual vacancy.
