We are receiving a number of queries related to the pre-election period (purdah) prior to the General Election, which started when Parliament is dissolved today. Legal Briefing L01-19 on our website on the code of recommended practice on local authority publicity is useful for reacquainting ourselves with requirements. While legal risks to councils are low, there could be risks related to public perception and local media. So, please be cautious around any activity or communications that could be perceived to be political or controversial.
