The candidates for the Houghton Hall by-election on May 3 are:

> ROGER GIUGNO, Time for Houghton to be Heard

> YVONNE FARRELL, Liberal Democrats

> ALEX BUTLER, The Labour Party

The by-election follows the death of Cllr Robin Hines on January 27.

Of the three candidates, Roger Giugno has featured most prominently in the media as a vocal critic of the Legacy Foundation’s plans for Kingsland. He notably headed the Stop the Destruction of Kingsland Wildlife Site campaign, which attracted some support locally including a public protest outside town council offices last year.
