Aylsham-area residents go to the polls this Thursday, March 17, to elect a new Broadland district councillor.

A total of 6,040 registered voters are eligible to take part and the result is expected to be declared before midnight.

Three candidates are standing in the election. They are: Christopher Jenner, of Lower Farm, Horsford (Labour), Steve Riley, of Barnby Road, Badersfield (Liberal Democrat), and Hal Turkmen, of Cawston Road, Aylsham (Conservative).

The ward covers Aylsham, Blickling, Burgh and Tuttington, Marsham and Oulton.

Polling stations are open between 7am and 10pm in Aylsham Town Hall, Burgh-next-Aylsham Reading Room, Marsham Village Hall, and Oulton Chapel.

Counting will take place in Aylsham Town Hall shortly after the polls close and a result is expected within two hours.

The vacancy has arisen following the resignation of Conservative Jo Cottingham who has moved to Hampshire to be near her son.
