Population is based on electoral role

 

 POPULATION DEFINITION (ELECTORAL ROLL)

 

In defining population size for the purpose of Anglia in Bloom it is essential that entrants also define the boundaries of the city/town/village/coastal resort etc. containing that population on the electoral roll. This decides which category an entrant will be placed in.

        

Each County Planning Department holds population figures based on districts, parishes and urban wards. There is usually a research officer (occasionally called a demographer) in the planning department who has particular responsibility for the various uses of population figures.

        

Entrants should contact their respective County Planning Department and dependent upon the entry, request:

  • The names of the urban wards which comprise the area of their entry;

  • The boundaries of those urban wards;

  • The population figures based on the most recent Electoral roll for those urban wards.

        

Based upon this information, each city/town/village etc. will be asked to provide a map of the area concerned to Anglia in Bloom. The map will clearly outline the boundary of the entry’s area, and a list of the respective urban wards, by name should be attached. A statement of the population size based on the names of the urban wards should also be supplied to support the entry.

        

In the event of an entrant being nominated for entry into Britain in Bloom, Anglia in Bloom will provide the organisers of Britain in Bloom with a copy of the map and statements of population.

 

CATEGORY DEFINITION

 

All entries are defined by the numbers on the Electoral Roll within the stated boundary.

In addition:

     

An Urban Community must be an identifiable community within a larger conurbation (sometimes described as an urban 'village or town'). It must have its own sense of identity and have its own 'Bloom' group (a group dedicated to leading the 'in Bloom' initiative locally). An urban community may not have its own Council, or be able to stand alone, but it will have its own 'sense of place'.

     

Coastal is an area that actively encourages visitors with a resort beach and/or harbour (which can be part of a commercial harbour). The area will have facilities providing varied recreational opportunities for visitors. The beach/harbour will have all or some of the following: a cafι or restaurant, shop, toilets, public transport, supervision, first aid, public telephone. A coastal resort is described as an area which has substantial visitor accommodation and tourism as an integral part of the economy.

 

Notes:

 

Categories ‘‘F’’ and ‘‘G’’ – An entry from these categories can be stand alone or from an entry in categories ‘‘A to E’’ There is no limit to how many can be entered eg if you have four parks and four cemeteries, etc, all can be entered. These are treated as separate entries and have their own set of times for judging

They can also be shown and included in the entry in categories ‘‘A to E’’

 

Category ‘‘F’’

The Parks entry differs in its definition in that it is defined by size and not as all the other entries that are defined by the numbers on the Electoral Roll within a stated boundary.

 

Any type of Park can be entered be it a small village green, a park owned by a council or even a country park. NB Not a national park.

 

There is no restriction to the number of parks that can be entered from an area, i.e. a large borough council may have a number of parks within its boundaries and all can be entered, not as one entity but separately.

 

As with an urban entry that is judged separately and can then be included in a larger entries judging route so too will a park or parks be judged separately but can be included within a larger entry.

Entry can be done using the existing Anglia in Bloom entry form

 

Parks Judging Guidelines

 

Category ‘‘G’’

It may seem an unusual category for an In Bloom campaign, but just stop and think for a moment about  what you might find there.

Large well laid out public open spaces, trees and tree collections (in some cases rare trees), areas set aside for wildlife especially in closed burial grounds, good horticultural practice, volunteers and ‘‘friends groups’’ and not forgetting of course many with outstanding floral displays and fine lawns. So what could be more closely associated with our In Bloom campaign than these? We invite entries from every size of cemetery or crematoria whether open or closed site.

 

Cemeteries Judging Guidelines 

 

NB If a multiple entry of five parks or five cemeteries or a combination of  both is made, the cheapest one will be free of charge

 

Category ‘‘H’’(BID) BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT

Details will be available shortly.

 

Category ‘‘I’ WOODLANDS

These can be any size with unrestricted access to the public, which includes for people with disabilities. Pathways should be suitable for wheelchairs. It could be a nationally important site such as an SSSI. Be well managed, with a thought out and comprehensive management plan that includes the reintroduction/encouragement for wildlife to return, especially rare species. It could be somewhere that has been saved from development and turned into a wildlife refuge. Seats and litter bins should also be provided so that people can sit and contemplate in a natural environment. There is no restriction on the number of woodlands that can be entered. As with an urban entry that is judged separately and can then be included in a larger entries judging route so too will a woodland be judged separately but can be included within a larger entry.

Entry can be done using the existing Anglia in Bloom entry form Entry Form Click Here

 

Woodland Judging Guidelines 

 

Category ‘‘J’’ PUBLIC HOUSES, HOTELS and RESTAURANTS

They should be in a public area and not a private garden and be on full public display They must be demonstrate good design, colour combinations, appropriate choice of plants, innovation, quality of plants, cultivation, maintenance and/or special features. There is no restriction on the number of public houses, restaurants or hotels that can be entered. As with an urban entry that is judged separately and can then be included in a larger entries judging route so too will a Public House, Restaurant or Hotel be judged separately but can be included within a larger entry.
