Postal votes being re-issued for Chaddesley Corbett Neighbourhood Plan referendum

News release issued:

Postal votes for the Chaddesley Corbett Neighbourhood Plan referendum are being reissued by Wyre Forest District Council after an error was identified on the ballot paper.

The referendum is taking place on Wednesday 8 February. It is to decide whether or not Wyre Forest District Council should use the neighbourhood plan to help it determine planning applications in the Chaddesley Corbett area.

There are 245 ballot papers being reissued to postal voters because the question was inadvertently omitted from the ballot paper. New postal voting packs are being sent out next week (week commencing Monday 23 January) to everyone in the neighbourhood area who votes by post.

The counting officer, Ian Miller, said:

 “I would like to apologise for this error which is being corrected by cancelling all the issued postal voting packs and issuing new packs. I would particularly like to apologise to postal voters who have already returned their postal voting packs for any inconvenience caused. Postal voters in the parish of Chaddesley Corbett should dispose of the pack that they have already been sent and use the new postal voting pack, which should reach them during the course of the week of 23 January.”

There is plenty of time for postal votes to be completed and returned as the poll will be held on Wednesday 8 February. If desired, completed postal voting packs can be handed in on 8 February at the polling station at Chaddesley Corbett Village Hall, between 7am and 10pm.

Postal voters who would like further information or assistance can email or call 01562 732733.
