LOCAL ELECTIONS POSTPONED FOR A YEAR

I have just heard that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the government has postponed the Borough Council and Police and Crime Commissioner elections which were due on 7th May for a year. I assume this will mean that Polling Day will now be Thursday 6th May 2021 coinciding with the County Council elections with the Councillors elected to Fareham Borough Council serving for three rather than four years. Existing Councillors will therefore continue for a fifth year.
