Local elections 2021: Babergh District Council by-election candidates standing for Great Cornard seat revealed




Four candidates have put themselves forward for the Babergh District Council by-election next month for the Great Cornard seat.

Voters in Great Cornard will be able to vote for a new district councillor on May 6, alongside the police and crime commissioner and Suffolk County Council polls taking place the same day.

The ward has three seats at Babergh council, all of which were secured by the Conservative party in the 2019 local elections. However, the resignation of Honor Grainger-Howard has prompted a by-election.
