Council Meetings

Newbold Verdon Parish Council meet once a month at 7pm on the first Monday of every month except in August, at the Sports Pavilion on Alans Way. Members of public are welcome to attend and make representations against items detailed on the meeting agenda, during the public open session only.

However, due to the current Covid-19 lockdown restrictions, all meetings are being held virtually via the video conference app Zoom at the earlier time of 6.30pm until further notice. Should you wish to join a Parish Council meeting, then you will need to use the meeting hyperlinks added to this page (see below), along with the meeting ID to gain access. The password will need to be obatined from the Parish Clerk.

Council will not be meeting in August and do not reconvene until Monday 7th September. Therefore the meeting details will be added to this webpage nearer the time. Please check back towards the end of August for this information.

Voting Press Release

PRESS RELEASE

Voters urged to make sure they are registered to vote

The Borough Council is encouraging its residents to make sure they're registered to vote by responding to the annual canvass.

During the annual canvass, the borough council contacts every household in the borough to make sure the details it holds about residents on the electoral register are correct.

As well as confirming the details of people eligible to vote, the electoral register is also an important source for credit reference agencies. People not listed on the electoral register often find it very difficult to obtain credit. More »

The canvass process has changed this year in order to minimise the need for doorstep visits during the current health crisis. In line with the Government's canvass reform programme, the council will be using data and electronic communication, such as email and telephone calls, to contact residents as well as traditionally posted letters.

Residents are asked to be ready for an email, phone call or letter from the council, asking them to check on those registered and inform the council of any changes.

Bill Cullen, Chief Executive at Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, said: "I am encouraging everyone eligible to vote in Hinckley and Bosworth, and particularly residents who have recently moved and young people aged 16 and 17, to follow the instructions from the elections team to make sure everyone is able to have a say in future elections. If you're not currently registered, your name will not appear in the messages we send."

"It's easy to register and only takes a few minutes online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote."

Anyone without online access can either post their form back or call the council's elections team on Tel. 01455 255835. » Less
