LOCAL DEMOCRACY AND BOUNDARY COMMISSION FOR WALES: LOCAL GOVERNMENT (DEMOCRACY) (WALES) ACT 2013
REVIEW OF ELECTORAL ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE COUNTY BOROUGH OF THE VALE OF GLAMORGAN
The Local Democracy and Boundary Commission for Wales are about to conduct a review of the electoral arrangements for the County Borough of the Vale of Glamorgan. Among the matters the Commission will consider are the size of Vale of Glamorgan County Borough Council and the number and boundaries of its electoral wards based on the existing pattern of communities and community wards.
Before they begin to formulate their draft proposals, the Commission invite any person or body having an interest in the review to send their initial comments via email to: email@example.com, or in writing to: The Chief Executive, Local Democracy and Boundary Commission for Wales, Hastings House, Fitzalan Court, CARDIFF, CF10 0BL between 8 May 2019 and 30 July 2019.
Further information about the review and the work of the Commission can be found on the Commission’s website: www.ldbc.gov.wales.
Please note that the comments received may be published. If the respondent does not wish to publicly disclose their name and address this must be stated expressly in the response.
The Vale of Glamorgan, Electoral Registration Team needs your help. They are currently conducting the Annual Canvass 2018. They are duty bound by law to write to all properties in the Vale of Glamorgan asking for basic information on the residents of each household over the age of 16 in order to update the Electoral Register before the publication on December 1st. The Council have already sent the first pink Household Enquiry Forms out in July and at the point of the deadline for this letter on August 17th 75% of the Vale of Glamorgan residents had responded to their forms. This is brilliant, however there is still more work to do and the Council would love to be able to exceed last year’s overall figure which was 88.4%.
The Council have written out again to all non-responders with a reminder letter. The deadline date for a response to this is September 20th. After this date they will have no alternative but to send out house to house canvass teams to knock doors in order to complete the forms. Ultimately there would be a cost saving to the Vale of Glamorgan Council if they can reduce the amount of properties they have to visit as well as a saving on the amount of letters we would have to reprint.
So, if you have not as yet completed your Household Eform you can do quickly and easily via www.registersecurely.com/VoG and entering the 2 security codes.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
