The Local Government Act 2000
The Local Authorities (Referendums) (Petitions and Directions) (England) Regulations 2011
Publication of verification number
Regulation 4 (1) of the above regulations requires each council to publish a verification number - which is the figure representing 5% of the number of local government electors for the authority's area in the revised register of electors having effect on 15 February 2016.
The verification number published for the District of North West Leicestershire is 3634
These Regulations make provision in connection with the holding of a referendum on whether a council should change to a different form of governance where at least 5% of the local government electors in the authority's area petition the authority.
The reason for publishing this information is for the purpose of determining the validity of petitions presented during the period 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017.
