Chichester MP resigns from district council
Eight months after being elected as MP, Gillian Keegan has officially stepped down from Chichester District Council.
This morning, her parliamentary office confirmed her resignation had been accepted by the district council’s chief executive.
Mrs Keegan said she had ‘loved’ representing Rogate as a councillor but acknowledged there was ‘absolutely no way’ she could get to council meetings when she had to be in parliament at the same time.
