Date set for by-election to replace late councillor

Have your say

The date has been set for a by-election to replace a Sheffield councillor who died last year.

Voters will take to the polling booths in Arbourthorne on Thursday, February 6, to select a candidate to fill the seat left by Coun John Robson, who died in October.

Coun Robson, a former social worker, represented the ward for 10 years before losing a two-year battle with cancer. New applications to vote by post or changes to existing arrangements must reach the Electoral Registration Officer by January 22.
