Purdah: there’ll be less activity on this blog

We’ll be quiet over the next few weeks.  The period of time from when the county council election is announced (27th March 2012) until after the election is held (3rd May 2012) is known as ‘purdah‘.

During this period we don’t engage in any communication activity that might advantage one political party or individual standing for office over another. We always aim to keep our posts here and on social media politically neutral, but we need to be particularly careful during this time to avoid anyone misinterpreting our content as promotion of one political agenda over another.

However, council business still goes on! We look forward to continuing our conversations with residents and other partners after the elections.
