Two councillors have stepped down from their roles on the city council.
Cllr David Mellen, Leader of Nottingham City Council said:
‘I am sad to say that after much consideration, my colleagues Chantal Lee and Lauren O’Grady have taken the decision to stand down as councillors for their respective wards. I would like to thank them for their hard work over the last two years and everything they have done for the people of Nottingham.
‘Chantal has led the work to make Nottingham a ‘Child Friendly City’, writing Nottingham’s first Breastfeeding Charter and promoting the needs of children across all of our services as well as being available residents of St Ann’s at surgeries, through email and by phone, helping hundreds of individual problems raised with her.
‘Lauren likewise has been involved in the finalising of the new Sherwood library on Mansfield Road and has also been involved in other ward activity such as regularly taking part at litter picks, joining in with community events at Woodthorpe Park, and was leading recently on improvements to the Carrington underpass.
‘There will now be by-elections in the autumn in St Ann’s and Sherwood wards.
‘This is a good reminder that elections can happen at any time, so it is important you make sure you are on the electoral register.
