If you have received a Household Enquiry Form for your property
Please follow the instructions on the form and respond online. Alternatively you can add, delete or amend any details on the form and return it to us. We will then invite each new individual to register to vote or take steps to delete those no longer resident.
If you don't respond to the Household Enquiry form, you'll be sent a reminder. You may also receive a canvasser visit during the door-knocking stage.
Please help us to keep costs down by responding promptly.
