We are at the stage of preparing quantities of printing for the nomination packs. We should have the packs ready to send out by the middle of March. As soon as they are ready to go we will send them out! If you would like a nomination pack (either for yourself as an individual or on behalf of a political party), please let the Elections Office know so that we can add your details to our distribution list – an early response helps with finalising our numbers for printing. You can either email your nomination pack requirements to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office on 01992 564411.
**** Please be aware that ALL nomination papers MUST BE HAND-DELIVERED – we cannot accept them if they have been posted to the Returning Officer at the Civic Offices. ****
We can accept the completed nomination packs from Monday 30 March (NOT before) until 4pm on Wednesday 8 April. Please do NOT leave submission to the last minute in case of errors.
There is a change in legislation made in 2019 which allows a candidate to withhold their home address form appearing on the ballot paper and Statement of Persons Nominated. More details are included in the nomination pack together with the new “Home Address Form” which needs to be completed as part of the process.

STRONGER COMMUNITIES SELECT COMMITTEE - 4 February 2020
Annual Report of the Community Safety Partnership and Strategic Assessment
At the meeting of the Stronger Communities SC, Councillor D Wixley raised concerns regarding the population statistics used in the report. The Services Manager – Community Resilience, Caroline Wiggins advised that she would check what sources had been used for the purposes of the Assessment and would report her findings in the Members’ Bulletin.
Kim Stalabrass, Essex Police Analyst has provided an explanation as below:
Firstly, for some reason I’ve noticed that the page breaks have shifted to which I will amend.
The 123,900 population figures in section 3.1 District Detail came from EFDC as listed at the start of the section. The 76,386 figure in section 3.2 Population Information however comes from ONS and was produced 4 years ago in 2016 at the midpoint between Census. Both sources are clearly identified at the start of each section.
A significant increase between the 2 figures agreed but as with all things data it depends on what they are counting. I would assume the EFDC data is more up to date and would probably count all individuals in the district. The ONS data may well count differently, ie only count adults and I would have to go back into the ONS website to find the parameters but it is clearly an older data set and the current figure will almost certainly be higher as reported by EFDC.
In both instances the source, and data parameters where necessary, are listed at the start of each section rather than in a footnote that is usually smaller font and more difficult to read. The intention for this placement is that before assimilating the info in the section the reader should be clear about the source the information is based on.
Data Sources are explained at the start of the document on page 2.
