Of the incumbent councillors, Chairman Carl Smith and Secretary Steve Champion had chosen not to seek re-election for the 2014/15 financial year. Councillor Bill Bradley had resigned for personal reasons. The three remaining members declaring themselves available for re-election.
Nominations to fill any vacancies were received for Paul Goddard (NSRYS), Grant Lane (NMMS) and Linton Little (GHRYC).
As there were only 6 nominations for the 6 Council positions, it was decided no election was necessary and the 5 remaining incumbent Councillors voted unanimously to hand over the transmitter to the incoming Council as of Friday 16th January 2015.
