The below message was received from Shepway District council-
“I am sorry to report that the Otterpool Park community engagement events scheduled for 18-20 May have had to be postponed as Shepway District Council will be in a period of restricted publicity in advance of the General Election to be held on 8 June. The Council is subject to pre-election restrictions set out in Section 2 of the Local Government Act 1986, as amended in 1988.
This is the same reason why we were unable to hold events in the run-up to the May 4 County Council elections – we were obviously unaware that a general election would be called when we announced the new dates.
We will reschedule the events to happen as soon as possible after the election is held but that will be subject to venue availability. We will send further details of the schedule of events once these have been finalised.””
