Poll cards were delivered to properties across the District between March 30 and April 3. If you haven’t yet received your poll card, especially if you have recently moved house, you may not be registered to vote. You do not need to take yo...ur poll card to the polling station (unless you have an anonymous registration) but you do need to be on the Electoral Register to vote in all UK elections and referendums. You are not automatically registered even if you pay council tax.
The last date to register for May 5 is Monday, April 18, 2016. You can register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote or you can contact the Election Office on 01702 318187.
Remember too, if you are unable to go to the polling station on May 5 or would prefer to vote by post or proxy, the deadline for applying for a postal vote or to change existing absent vote arrangements is 5pm on April 19. You can apply for a proxy vote up until 5pm on April 26. However if you have a medical emergency or are called away unexpectedly for work or service reasons after this date contact the Election helpline on 01702 318187 as you may be eligible for an emergency proxy vote.
The three dog bins in Kendal Park are emptied weekly on a Tuesday. We are aware of the issue of the bin near the Esplanade overflowing. Please be advised the Council discussed it at last nights Full Council meeting and we are looking to either installing an additional bin at the West end of the Reserve or having the bins emptied twice a week. Either option should rectify the problem. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Use the calendar or list of months to view entries made on those dates.
