The candidates standing for the Halesworth Town Council by-election have been announced.

The seats became vacant following the resignation of Andrew Payne and Tracy Gardner in December, who both no longer live or work in the Halesworth area.

Those standing for the election are Tony Allen, Karen Prime, Jill Reece and Jacqueline Wagner.

Voting will take place on Thursday, March 1, from 7am to 10pm, and two candidates will be elected to fill the vacant seats.

The town council has also now received plenty of suggestions for new street names for developments that may go ahead in Halesworth in the future.

Residents were asked to put forward ideas back in November, with the chance to create a small piece of town history.

The council said the list will be looked at when any new development goes ahead. Anyone still wishing to put ideas forward can send them to clerk@halesworthtowncouncil.org.uk or in writing to the clerk’s office at Halesworth Town Council, London Road, Halesworth, IP19 8LW.
