North Norfolk MP Duncan Baker has announced that he will be stepping down as a district councillor.
Mr Baker will be standing down immediately from his role as North Norfolk District councillor for Holt, with the election for his successor planned to be held in May.
He said: “I’d like to thank all the officers and staff at North Norfolk District Council, not just for all the work we have done together over the last four years but also fully recognising everything they have done for North Norfolk throughout the pandemic.
“I can’t thank them all enough and look forward to us continuing to work together under my parliamentary role.”
In December he was names as one of a team of 12 Tory MPs appointed to represent different parts of the UK in an effort to boost high street trade.
