Monday 22 May. Last Date for Voter Registration

If you know anyone new in your street do ask them whether they have registered to vote. If so they can ring 020 8726 6300.

Electoral.services@croydon.gov.uk. www.croydon.gov.uk/elections

38 Degrees writes:

‘The government has changed the system for registering people to vote, so the number of 18 year olds registered to vote has plummeted. 25% fewer school-leavers are registered to vote than 3 years ago. …Unless we do something, that means thousands of young people who won’t get a say. And more encouragement for politicians who say that when it comes to elections, young people just don’t matter. Time is running out, but chances are you know young people who aren’t registered to vote – so you’ve still got a few days left to encourage them.’

Monday 22 – Thursday 25 May. 9.30am onwards. Local Plan Public Hearing

The Inspector will be discussing with people making representations on housing intensification, the Green Grid, affordable housing, dwelling mix, housing quality, gypsies and travellers provision and employment and district centres. Members of the public are welcome to attend to listen.
