Review of polling districts and places in the borough

Every 5 years, we are required to carry out a review of the polling districts and polling places in the borough. The next review must be carried out between October 2018 and January 2020.

The review must be carried out to make sure that all electors have reasonable facilities for voting as possible in the circumstances.

What does the review involve?

The process starts with an official notice of review, which gives details of when and where comments or representations can be made in relation to the review. 

Any elector in the borough may make a representation in relation to the size and boundaries of polling districts and the location and suitability of polling places.  

The Council also welcomes comments or representations from any elected members in the area, local political representatives and any person or body with expertise in access for persons with any type of disability. The (Acting) Returning Officer must respond, and his comments will be published on this site. 

The notice and other information will be posted here when the review commences.
