There will be a Gravesham Borough Council by-election in Painters Ash ward following the resignation of Cllr Colin Dennis due to ill health.

Cllr Dennis took the seat at elections in May 2011 when Labour won all three seats back from the Conservatives.

He is 68 and lives in Gainsborough Drive, Northfleet. Prior to becoming an elected member for Gravesham Borough Council, Cllr Dennis worked for Scott’s in Northfleet and is known by his friends as ‘Kermit’.

Cllr Dennis has one of the best meeting attendance records despite being ill for some time. He was a member of six main committees and a substitute member on two more.

Council leader Cllr John Burden said: “Colin will be missed especially by his constituents because he was an assiduous ward member and tireless worker in the community.”

The by-election will probably be set for 2 May to coincide with the Kent County Council elections.
