Brondesbury Park by-election announced

24 March 2021

A by-election for a vacant council position in the electoral ward of Brondesbury Park in the London Borough of Brent will be held on Thursday 6 May 2021.

This follows the resignation of former Councillor Kieron Gill who informed Carolyn Downs, Returning Officer and Chief Executive of Brent Council, of his decision to step down earlier this week.

The by-election will take place on the same day as the Mayor of London and London Assembly Elections on 6 May, meaning eligible voters in Brondesbury Park ward will be voting in four elections on the same day.

Apply early if you want to vote by post

Voters have a range of options for casting their ballot – in person, by post or by appointing someone they trust to vote in their place, known as a proxy vote.
