Have your say

Look out for your voter registration details from Buckinghamshire Council

01 July 2020

Buckinghamshire residents are being encouraged to make sure their electoral registration details are up to date in the annual canvass.

With the first elections for Buckinghamshire Council taking place in May 2021, the canvass is an important opportunity for residents to ensure they will be able to take part and vote.

The annual canvass means Buckinghamshire Council can keep the electoral register up to date, identifying any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so.

Ian Hunt, Interim Head of Democratic and Electoral Services at Buckinghamshire Council, said: “It’s important that residents keep an eye out for messages so we can make sure we have the right details on the electoral register for every address in the county. To make sure you are able to have your say at the elections taking place next year, simply follow the instructions as provided. It is really quick to confirm your registration details.

“If you’re not currently registered, your name will not appear in the messages we send. The easiest way to register is online atwww.gov.uk/register-to-vote, otherwise you will simply need to confirm or amend the details following the respond method on your communication.

“This year’s canvass, which we have to carry out by law, is taking place during a challenging public health situation. We are working to ensure that we take account of public health guidelines, including the continued importance of social distancing.”

The council will be contacting residents by post or email between July and August.

New Maids Moreton Traffic Survey

New Maids Moreton Traffic Survey

Discussing continued concerns about the level of traffic flows within Maids Moreton, it was felt that traffic levels had increased compared with those recorded in December 2018. To check whether this impression was correct, a pilot sample was undertaken on 15 October 2019 at the Main St / Manor Park junction between 0800 and 0900. This indicated that traffic had increased.Consequently, more comprehensive traffic counts were undertaken at two key junctions that provide a good overview of traffic levels within the village. These two junctions are Main St / Manor Park and Mill Lane / Church St. In order to make the data as comparable as possible with that from 2018, the same recording periods, 0800 to 0900 and 1700 to 1800 were used.
