At the Council meeting on 13th February 2017 it was reported by the Clerk that Councillor Dave Williams had tendered his resignation.  This creates a vacancy and Bradninch residents have until 16th March to notify the Electoral Registrar at Mid Devon District Council that they wish to call an election to fill the vacancy.

This requires 10 electors of the Town Ward to notify the Registrar in writing.

If no election is called then it will be up to the Town Council to find someone to co-opt. If you are interested in filling the vacancy by co-option then contact the Town Clerk on 01392 881641 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


There have been complaints in parts of Bradninch about an unusually large number of flies causing a nuisance.

If you are suffering from this problem you should report it to Environmental Services at Mid Devon District Council.  They are investigating and it will help them if people who are affected can report it so that they can see how widespread it is.  Ring MDDC on 01884 255255 and choose the Environmental Services option from the menu.
