Director of Strategy, Performance & Governance 27/04/2022 Cllr Penny Channer, Leader of the Council;  Cllr Mark Heard, Chairman of the Council General- Emergency Powers   Referendum for the Neighbourhood Plan for Great Totham – 6 May 2022
Polling Station Required Change

A Referendum is required for Great Totham which is scheduled for 9 June 2022.
It has become necessary for a change of polling station location for Great Totham South for this Referendum. The usual station, Great Totham Village Hall, is not available on the day of poll and is not available for any other suitable date in order to meet the required deadlines within which to hold the referendum. Therefore an alternative station at Honywood Hall, Hall Road, Great Totham, Maldon, Essex CM9 8NN has been sourced and checked for suitability.
The Hall is central within this part of the village.  It is quite compact, but provides all the necessary things needed, such as space for voting booths, so that electors can cast their vote in privacy, as well as for my staff to issue votes. It has a suitable kitchen and amenities and other ancillary items as required as well as access for disabled people.  There is space within the boundary of the Hall for around five cars which based on the electorate and estimated outturn will be sufficient.
