Advice for residents affected by smoke - 1 September
A plume of smoke is being blown across Poole and Bournemouth towards the New Forest following a fire at the Wareham landfill site in Dorset. We have been advised that there is no risk if you are walking around in the open, but keep doors and windows closed if you are affected at home.
The way we all register to vote is changing
The way you register to vote is changing across the UK. Most electors will transfer to the new electoral register automatically, but some residents may need to take action to join the new register, even if they were registered in the past.
We will be writing to local residents to tell them whether they have transferred to the new register or if they need to take further action. You could be one who needs to re-register so it is important that you look out for a letter towards the end of July that will tell you if action is needed.
