Hosting the event at Hendon Town Hall brings it under purdah rules (the period of time immediately before elections or referendums when specific restrictions on communications activity are in place). During this period councillors & council staff would not be able to make comment on the issues discussed, they would have to be either officially campaigning for their parties or not saying anything, neither of which would be helpful for the purpose of this event. The whole point of the Big Conversation is to gather those who have taken part in the Real People Honest Talk ‘Small Conversations’ & for those who need to listen to and potentially action & support the results of these discussions. In order for this to happen, we need these people to be in the room which during this time, is simply not possible.
We will host this again in January 2020 & a date will follow soon.
