More information on the election

Note: One of Wednesbury South ward’s three seats has become vacant following former councillor Kirat Singh resigning in August this year from the seat he won as a Labour candidate in May 2021. The council has been advised that Mr Singh has secured a new job that is politically restricted (which meant he could not continue as a councillor).
