Two people have put their names forward for the vacancy on Ludlow Town Council created after the resignation of Graeme Perks: Darren Childs (address in Shropshire) Thomas Ian Scott Bell (Broad Street). Both are standing as independents, as is the normal, but not compulsory, practice on Ludlow Town Council. Darren Childs is known for his work on campaigning for better ambulance cover for Ludlow. Ian Scott Bell stood unsuccessfully for Ludlow North as a Conservative in the May 2021 unitary elections. The date of the by-election will be 31 March 2022.
