The countdown to county elections begins

Daily Echo: Hampshire County Council's headquarters at The Castle, in Winchester Hampshire County Council's headquarters at The Castle, in Winchester

IT IS the election that will affect the lives of thousands of people across Hampshire.

On May 2, people will head to the polling stations to vote in the county council elections.

Voters will be deciding who should control the authority that provides vital services – including schools, roads, social services, museums and libraries.

Four years ago the Conservative group strengthened their grip – gaining six seats in the process.

And council leader Ken Thornber, 80, the current leader, is standing again but has pledged to step down as head of his party after 15 years.

If elected, the councillors will be responsible for a number of key issues across a huge area stretching from Ringwood in the west to Emsworth in the east.

But council bosses will be hoping for a bigger turnout than in 2009.

Turnout was considerably lower across the county than in 2005, although that coincided with the 2005 General Election.

In 2009 in Totton North, 32.51 per cent of the electorate turned out compared to 62.13 per cent in 2005.

It was a similar story in Romsey Town. Just 47.66 per cent of the electorate voted – down from 70.67 per cent in 2005.

In Winchester a key issue will be schools, with the Tories defending allegations of insufficiently preparing for the rising numbers of children.

The county is proposing a controversial new super-school in Fulflood which will be a big issue in the Winchester Westgate division.

Whoever is voted to represent the Romsey and Test Valley areas will oversee efforts to improve pedestrian safety.

Romsey and Test Valley has been plagued with poor pavements, and it was revealed nearly £200,000 in compensation was paid out between 2007 and 2012 to fall victims.

Cllr Mel Kendal, Cabinet spokesman for the environment, said the authority had earmarked £520,000 for improving footways in the Test Valley between 2011 and 2013 – with £155,000 going to Romsey-based schemes.

The county council has also joined forces with Test Valley Borough Council to launch the Romsey Future project, which aims to install shared road surfaces in Market Place, Bell Street and Church Street.

Housing is a major issue in Eastleigh – in particular homes being built in Hedge End. Up to 1,000 new homes were due at Woodhouse Lane, in Hedge End, as part of an Eastleigh Borough Council development.

Second place But earlier this year the plans derailed after the county council, which owns the land, said it would not release it for housing, informing the Eastleigh authority the land was not available a year previously.

Eyes will also be cast on how votes will go in Eastleigh after UKIP’s surprising second place in the Parliamentary by-election in February.

UKIP candidates have been named in the Eastleigh East, Eastleigh West, and Botley and Hedge End divisions.

Road safety in the New Forest has been a major issue for Hampshire County Council.

Last October it was announced thousands of pounds was being spent at an accident blackspot after a cycle safety campaigner was killed.

The council pledged to spend cash on road markings at Ipley Crossroads after former university lecturer Mark Brummell died in a collision with a car.

Education is another key part of county council responsibility.

It was revealed in January how the county council was considering proposals for a second primary school in Whiteley near Fareham.

The school was proposed by the Portsmouth and Winchester Diocese and land owned by the county council was identified as a possible temporary site.

It was prompted by Winchester City Council’s plan to bring forward the north Whiteley development area for housing over the next few years.

Anyone wanting to have their say on how the county is run needs to have been on the electoral register by Wednesday, April 17.

Voters will need to be registered with their local borough or district council.

Those wanting to cast their vote by post need to send their application to district councils by April 17, and proxy vote applications by April 24.

"Road safety in the New Forest has been a major issue for Hampshire County Council.

What the one where only two weeks ago there was a serious accident? It involved 4 cars (at least 2 of which looked like write off's) and who knows what injures (Cycling past the carnage just as the ambulance arrived). Sounded exactly the same as before driver didn't give way and pulled out in front of oncoming traffic. Blasé elderly local. Money well spent?

Driver training! and retesting is what road safety needs not more signs. Yes I drive a car and yes I would do a re-test and yes I would pay for it, a price worth paying to make roads safer.

I make it just four: Winchester Westgate, Winchester Eastgate, Fordinbridge and Eastleigh West.

Now I know maths is one of your many weaknesses, but 4 out of 78 is just 5.1%.

Results will be available after the elections. In fact you meant nominations, the list of candidate whose nominations have been submitted and accepted.

.. nope. The official list of candidates shows ALL those nominated for the 75 wards (3 wards have 2 councillors = 78 councillors). I posted the link to the HCC website in my first post.

Only Adam Freeman, Dave Boyes, Jane Ward and Ania Waterman are standing for TUSC. That’s it. No more. Full Stop.

It’s probably a case of TUSC couldn’t find the 10 people needed for the nomination papers. I mean, if you can only get 62 votes in the much more populous Eastleigh parliamentary constituency, getting 10 nominations in a local ward must be quite a struggle.

But not for the Green Party, apparently.

Results will be available after the elections. In fact you meant nominations, the list of candidate whose nominations have been submitted and accepted.

As it is not bad outside today, why you and comrade Freefinker don't go to forest and dance listening to the latest number 1 in sales charts?

1 the candidate list for the local elections are linked to this article, non of the peiople you name are standing in this area.

2 The TUSC web site lists local candidates and none of the names you provided are there.

3 A search for the first two names shows John Bennison as the councillor for Hart district council and not due to stand for re-election this year, Dave Boyes is a councillor on Durham council Easington, he represents the labour party and was elected in 2008.

Once again you information is found to be incorrect and still you are claiming the ECHO has deliberately blacked out news about the TUSC. here is the link for the press complaints commission

Some of us may not like it but to start with Hampshire has massive Tory vote bank, and they are likely to cash on Maggie Thatcher's death.

Victims of cuts in jobs wages and services will be paying many millions for her funeral and the party of super rich whose rate of tax has been reduced will be profiteering in terms of votes because of super sympathetic coverage, which is being provided by the media since she died and will get even more on the day of her funeral.

So unfortunately chances of all parties of centre left will decrease.

I make it just four: Winchester Westgate, Winchester Eastgate, Fordinbridge and Eastleigh West.

Now I know maths is one of your many weaknesses, but 4 out of 78 is just 5.1%.

Your not counting the Umbrella candidates they are part of it all. Look at the TUSC it self look how many different groups there are with it, most of these groups will chose to go under the name TUSC other may not wish to, Like my self when I stand as a candidate I could stand as TUSC which I choose to or I could stand as Socialist Alliance, I can not stand under Socialist Party because that name as been taking by the SPUK.
Do you see how it works now, The Green Party started of the same way not all people standing used the name Green Party but over time they change over and how long as the Green Party been around.

John Bennison, Dave Boyes, John Cooper, Jacqui England, Jack Englefield, Adam Freeman, Christopher Gould, Les Lawrie, Howard Linsley, Alan Oliver, Ryan Sutton, Ian Tilbury, Genni Touzin, Anna Townsend, Jane Ward, Ania Waterman
.. nope. The official list of candidates shows ALL those nominated for the 75 wards (3 wards have 2 councillors = 78 councillors). I posted the link to the HCC website in my first post.

Only Adam Freeman, Dave Boyes, Jane Ward and Ania Waterman are standing for TUSC. That’s it. No more. Full Stop.

It’s probably a case of TUSC couldn’t find the 10 people needed for the nomination papers. I mean, if you can only get 62 votes in the much more populous Eastleigh parliamentary constituency, getting 10 nominations in a local ward must be quite a struggle.

But not for the Green Party, apparently.
Adam Freeman, Dave Boyes, Jane Ward and Ania Waterman are standing for TUSC name, there are others standing but are under the umbrella of the TUSC, Stephen J under stands better what is going on.
Look how the Labour party was formed, that started out as an umbrella only a few used the name Labour.
As for the hard 10 nominations Ania Waterman got hers in less than a hour at 10 different address, I hear the Green party took most of the day to get theres, and they are not all different addresses
OK, I have found four others from your list; two standing as ‘Independent’ and one each as ‘No Party’ and ‘The Community Campaign (Hart)’. But that really is it; all the rest are assigned to other parties that have no connection to TUSC, SWP or SP.

Even if we were to acknowledge they are under the TUSC umbrella that’s only 10.2% of wards being covered – not the 20% you initially claimed (and have boasted about in the past). And, of course, these 4 will not be officially recognised as TUSC as they were, apparently, too ashamed to have that label adhered to their names. So, it’s still 5.1%. Pathetic in view of all you have said before.

But that really is it; all the rest are assigned to other parties that have no connection to TUSC, SWP or SP. Even if we were to acknowledge they are under the TUSC umbrella that’s only 10.2% of wards being covered – not the 20% you initially claimed (and have boasted about in the past). And, of course, these 4 will not be officially recognised as TUSC as they were, apparently, too ashamed to have that label adhered to their names. So, it’s still 5.1%. Pathetic in view of all you have said before. freefinker

John Bennison (Community Campaign Hart) is on your list of those standing under the TUSC umbrella, but he fiercely claims no party political allegiance at all! Are you sure you've got this right?

.. so come on, how many candidates are TUSC putting up?

I make it just four: Winchester Westgate, Winchester Eastgate, Fordinbridge and Eastleigh West.

Now I know maths is one of your many weaknesses, but 4 out of 78 is just 5.1%.

Your not counting the Umbrella candidates they are part of it all. Look at the TUSC it self look how many different groups there are with it, most of these groups will chose to go under the name TUSC other may not wish to, Like my self when I stand as a candidate I could stand as TUSC which I choose to or I could stand as Socialist Alliance, I can not stand under Socialist Party because that name as been taking by the SPUK.
Do you see how it works now, The Green Party started of the same way not all people standing used the name Green Party but over time they change over and how long as the Green Party been around.
Come to think of it, are you sure your TUSC "umbrella list" isn't simply a list of candidates the TUSC doesn't want to stand against? If it is, that's a very different thing altogether.

Southy, I have to agree with you! The Echo should run a story on TUSC and maybe they can explain better than you how TUSC could handle an economy without going bust within 6 months.

There's a challenge Echo, run a story on TUSC, give us the truth on how they would cope if they ever won an election.

If the Echo chose to do this it would be unfair not to run a similar story on all of the fringe/fruit loop/nut-job parties. Like it or not there isn't anything to chose between Tusc, Elvis loves pets, Monster Raving loony, Wessex Regionalists, BNP, Greens etc etc etc. The only thing they serve to do is give the disaffected voter somewhere to put their 'X'.

I've always believed that the resident Wannabee politician would find it easier to earn a living on the stage rather than in the Council Chamber.
