Havant Borough Council responds to general election

Public Service Plaza

Over the next few weeks, you will receive more information about how and where to vote in the general election on 4 July.

Havant Borough Council’s local election concluded earlier this month and all borough councillors are now in place, however many council officers and volunteers will once again be working to support this next election.

While the council will continue to deliver business as usual in the run up to 4 July, there are restrictions in place during the pre-election period that limit what decisions the council can make, what events and meetings it can hold and how it can communicate with residents. More information about these restrictions can be found at: Pre-election period | Local Government Association

Havant Borough Council’s leader, Councillor Phil Munday, said: “We have been working hard as a new coalition to finalise how we will move forward and deliver for residents, businesses, and visitors in our borough.

“While we are a coalition and members campaigned on a wide range of issues before being elected, what unites us all is a desire to serve our communities and an ambition to start making the changes that people told us matter to them.

“The Prime Minister calling an election so soon after we take office has meant that we cannot communicate as openly as we would like about our plans during the election period. Please be assured that we continue to work with Council officers in the background to support the people of Havant and deliver on our election promises and we will keep you informed of progress after 4 July.”
