What do you think about                      changing      
​ our electoral cycle?



How often should we elect our councillors? That is the question to residents at the start of a consultation exercise that could change the election cycle in Hertsmere.

Currently we hold ‘elections by thirds’ which means that elections are held each year for three successive years out of four. Six wards have two councillors and will go to the polls twice over a four year period to elect one of the councillors for their ward. Nine wards have three councillors, so will vote in three consecutive years in a four year period.

We are considering changing our current election cycle to ‘whole council elections’ which would mean that all seats on the council would be elected at the same time, once every four years.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Morris Bright, is urging local residents to have their say: “It is important you have your say on how local democracy in Hertsmere is carried out.

“There are both positives and negatives for both electoral systems. To help you make an informed decision we have explained both systems and the benefits of them on our website. There is also a very short online survey where you can choose either ‘elections by thirds’ or the ‘whole council’ approach.

“After consulting with residents there will be a special Full Council meeting in July where we will consider the issue, which you can attend or watch live via a webcast on our website.”

If there is support for the whole council approach, then this would be introduced for May 2015 elections.

The timing of elections for the UK Parliament and the European Parliament will not be affected by any future change in the electoral cycle of Hertsmere Borough Council.

Please complete the online survey, which can be found on our website - www.hertsmere.gov.uk/howoftenshouldweelect - to let us know what you think. Deadline for responses is Friday 27 June 2014.

MOCK UP OF PROPOSED SUMMER EDITION
Parking eye without giving adequate notice have decided to reduce the parking in the retail park from 3 hours to 2 hours. Not only is this detrimental to the businesses in the town but also to the people who park their cars in the retail car park.
Most people need at least 3 hours.
A visit to the surgery could take 2 hours. Shoping in the food stores could take an hour or more visit the chemist for a prescription at least half an hour waiting in the banks when they are busy could take half an hour making a purchase from Argos, the sports shop, pound shop the shoe shop, Pet store, the phone shops and having a cup of coffee. Not to mention the shops in the High Street.
2 hours is certainly not enough and when Debenhams comes into the retail park browsing and making a purchase could take an hour or more ​​​ 
People were asked:                                                                          Will you continue to shop in Borehamwood under the changed parking system?
Yes:  ballot results 7%
No:  ballot results 93%                                                                        THIS WAS THE POSITION AT                                                            3 45 PM ON SATURDAY THE 12TH OF APRIL
