Community champion Barry Kirby has suddenly quit Quedgeley Parish Council.
Mr Kirby says he cannot continue because he needs to focus more time on the a growing workload in his role as the Grange and Kingsway county councillor as well as his private business and his children.
But the departure will raise eyebrows, coming just weeks after the resignation of Anna Mozol and Terry Pullen.
Mr Kirby said: "I have served on the parish council for four years and it has been a great experience.
"The parish council is a wonderful organisation.
"i joined it because I didn't believe in the direction it was going in but in my time there it has changed significantly and I have got a lot of faith in it. It is now more proactive."
Mr Kirby has not ruled out a return to the parish council in the future if his situation changes.
