Which takes us to Cottingley village - the oldest part and a mix of converted terraces, back-to-back housing and in-fill. Again there were plenty of gaps in the register- perhaps less surprising here where the small, relatively cheap terraced housing provides an entry point to the housing market. Got some positive response from the work we put in to stop the Council selling off a piece of land used for car parking
Overall a decent canvass - lots of 'don't know', 'I'll read that' responses but no evidence of switching. which isn't to say folk aren't switching, of course! Not a great area for us, so a pretty decent outcome.
On the AV vote seems to be more of a concern to older voters - really strongly against. The referendum's not in my literature but there are mentions from residents - the national message seems to be getting through.
