Polling day has been set for Thursday, May 22, to coincide with the European elections. Originally the local elections were due to take place on June 1 and the Europeans on June 4 but realising there was a major bank holiday in parts of Europe in early June, the elections were brought forward a fortnight and at that stage the Government rightly surmised that it would be a huge and unnecessary cost and inconvenience to taxpayers to run two sets of elections just three weeks apart and moved the local elections to May 22 also.
And residents will be faced with two different voting systems on the day. For the European vote residents will get to choose a party and then the seats are allocated according to the numbers of votes each party gets within their region. And differences between the two polls do not stop there. The votes for 13 borough council wards will be counted on the night of May 22, so we will all know the names our new councillors within a few hours of the polls closing at 10pm.

An undercover police operation was authorised and it became apparent that that multiple breaches were occurring which relate to the SEV licence. All of these conditions were broken. A video taken from the Beavers website also revealed that they promoted such behaviour. It was ascertained that an individual closely involved with the management and directorship of the venue was a person who would not have been granted an SEV licence had he applied himself.
The law also states that such a person cannot benefit from the running of such a venue. The licence application was refused at a hearing at the Town Hall on October 7. John Corkett, a licensing officer for Hertfordshire Constabulary, said: It was quite astonishing that the undercover police operation detected such flagrant breaches of the licence on the very first night that they went into the club.

The flytip consisted of two separate loads of rubbish containing a quantity of plaster board, construction and office waste. The waste was identified as originating from a bank in White Chapel Road, London, who had employed a company, ADS Cleaning Services Ltd from Essex, to remove temporary offices from their premises and dispose of the waste. The director of ADS Cleaning Services Ltd, Mahammad Mahboob Siddiqui, was interviewed under caution at Watford Town Hall where he admitted that he had used a waste carrier to remove the waste without checking that they were licensed to carry waste by the Environment Agency.
It is not acceptable that Watford residents have to pick up the cost to clear waste and the council will continue to take action wherever possible to discourage this illegal, anti-social and costly behaviour.
