The vacancy arose following the retirement on March 1st of County Councillor David Wildman who was the Member for Burton and Cabinet Member for Health; Well-Being and the Voluntary Sector.
Cllr Wildman's departure means that the current make-up of the council has 30 seats held by the ruling Independent Plus Group and 29 by the combined opposition groups and unafilliated members.
