Cllr James Allie resigns becoming the 4th Labour resignation in recent weeks

From Brent Council website:

Councillor James Allie, who represented the Alperton ward in the London Borough of Brent, has resigned today – Monday 9 December 2019.

The former Councillor notified Carolyn Downs, Returning Officer and Chief Executive of Brent Council, of his decision to stand down with immediate effect this morning.

His resignation creates a vacancy for the office of Councillor for the Alperton ward. In order to trigger a by-election, two local government electors in Brent must write to the Chief Executive’s Office requesting that an election take place. On receipt of the requests to fill this vacancy, the Returning Officer will set a date for an election to be held within 35 days.

All requests or letters regarding these vacancies must be sent to: Chief Executive’s Office, Brent Civic Centre, Engineers Way, Wembley, HA9 0FJ or by email to: or
LATE NEWS - Two requests have been received by the Brent Returning Officer so the by-election will be held on January 23rd alongside those for Barnhill and Wembley Central.

Personal note:  It would be handy if any other Labour councillor comtemplating resigning could do so as soon as possible - one cold December General Election and three bitterly cold January by-elections are quite enough. A freezing February one would be just too much! Thank you.
