Local Council Elections
A notice has been put in the Parish Magazine informing residents that there are elections for both the Parish and District Councils on Thursday 2nd May.
The Parish Council has thirteen councillors, seven of whom represent St. Osyth and six represent Point Clear. We did not have an election in 2015 as there were not sufficient people standing for the Parish Council, this was in itself sad, as elections bring new people and new ideas onto the Council and this is good for the village.
All those who are thinking of putting themselves forward for election have to be nominated by two residents who are on the electoral register and papers have to be submitted to the Town Hall by 4.00 pm on Wednesday 3 April 2019.
The nomination papers can be collected from the Parish Council Office at the Village Hall. Open from 9.30-12.30 Monday to Friday.
With effect from 25th February 2019, the Go Ride bus service from Clacton/Brightlingsea via St Osyth will be taken over by Hedingham and will operate as Route 7.
