Electoral Canvass 2017

Electoral Canvass 2017

 

Electoral Registration staff will be visiting homes across the Vale during October and November. Any households who have not responded to the Annual Electoral Canvass by 6 October are likely to be called upon.

 

The Annual Electoral Canvass runs from August to November and is designed to ensure the electoral register is accurate and also to identify any new electors who need to register. A completely revised electoral register is then published on 1 December. Legislation requires that local authorities send a Household Enquiry Form (HEF) to every household in their area and follow up with reminder forms and then a personal visit if required.

 

Residents can respond to the HEF online, by phone, text or by completing and returning the form (a reply paid envelope is provided). A response is required even if nothing has changed.

 

For more information about the Annual Electoral Canvass, or supply of the fully revised register, contact Peter Brown, Electoral Services Managerpbrown@aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk or see www.aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk/canvass.

 

VALP PARISH SEMINAR

VALP Parish Seminar

 

Come along to the VALP parish seminar on Wednesday 4 October starting 6.30pm at The Gateway where you will have the chance to hear about and discuss the plan.

 

The plan can be viewed at www.aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk/localplan and attached is an ‘at a glance’ summary of the key points.

 

You are also welcome to attend the cabinet meeting on Tuesday 10 October and council on Wednesday 18 October where VALP will be considered. Both of these meetings start at 6.30pm and will be held in The Oculus. They can also be watched live online at www.aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk/webcasts

 

This is the final stage of consideration in the public arena and will be followed by an opportunity for the public to comment on the plan. The consultation will run from Thursday 2 November to Thursday 14 December. Comments made at this stage will be sent to the inspector who can make amendments to the plan.

AVDC Announce New Measures on Dog Fouling

Public Space Protection Orders

 

New Legislation Affects Dog Control and Drinking in Public Places

 

On 20 October 2017 further parts of the Antisocial Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 will come into force.  The changes replace Dog Control Orders and Designated Public Place Orders (DPPOs – which concern drinking alcohol in public places), and may convert them to Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs).  PSPOs cover a range of activities and aim to protect the public from antisocial behaviour.

 

For a PSPO to be made there is a consultation process and certain conditions need to be met.  It only lasts for 3 years; however, it can be extended if it is still required.  PSPOs cannot be made by secondary authorities.

 

Dog Control:

Dog Control Orders focus on responsible dog ownership and cover activities such as requiring dogs to be kept on a lead, excluding them from certain public areas and restricting the number of dogs a person can take onto a piece of land. It was possible for either primary authorities (AVDC), or secondary authorities (town and parish councils) to make an order.

We aware that around five secondary authorities made orders and these will cease to have effect from 20 October.  These cannot be directly converted into a PSPO.  Any signage which refers specifically to the Dog Control Order will need to be removed. 

AVDC are still able to enforce dog fouling as it is covered by different legislation. The Dog Warden does undertake targeted patrolling and can serve Fixed Penalty Notices if necessary.  It has recently been clarified that enforcement can also be carried out in newer housing estates in the Vale.  Dog fouling can be reported via our website as well www.aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk/dog-fouling
