Denmead Parish Council

War Memorial Hall is safe

The War Memorial Hall IS SAFE! Vote NO in the poll!

There has been speculation that the hall is in danger and will be ‘lost’ to the village.

There have been numerous questions from the War Memorial Hall Committee and members of the Public put to the Council. A few people have disliked the answers provided and have called for a ‘Parish Poll’. Despite the poll not being called according to legislation, the Parish Council has agreed that it will not ask those calling for the poll to go through the correct process. The poll will cost the people of Denmead between £3,500 and £5,000 and is ‘advisory’. This means that the poll is not going to provide a legal result unlike the referendum for the Neighbourhood Plan which voted for a new Village Hall and a Multi User Sports Facility, which is now enshrined in our village planning law.

Additionally, the question being asked in the poll is not deliverable legally without explicit permission of the Secretary of State.
