Councillor Simon Deacon has resigned from Markyate Parish Council.

Mr Deacon is a former member of the National Front and was originally elected as a BNP member, but later resigned from the party to serve as an Independent.

A by-election will be held if 10 parishioners request one within 14 working days of Mr Deacon’s resignation by contacting the parish council or Dacorum Borough Council.
