Polling District and Polling Station Review 2019

Every local authority is required by legislation to carry out a review of its UK Parliamentary polling districts and polling places at least once every five years. Our last review took place in 2019.

Why do we need a review?

The intention is to make sure that we have suitable polling district boundaries. This takes into account the increases in population in certain areas following new development. We also intend to make sure that, wherever possible, we are offering polling stations that are in suitable premises, in the best location, with good access, and good transport links.

In encouraging views, it is of course the case that the availability of suitable polling places is the key determining factor in the makeup of polling districts. We welcome all comments, but would ask that any requests for change include suggestions of alternative locations.

Who can give feedback?

We welcome comments from electors, members and other interested parties. This includes any person or organisation with a particular interest or expertise about accessing premises or facilities for those with different forms of disability.

Comments can be made on:

  • any aspects of polling districts and/or polling places currently used or proposed to be used
  • any representations made by the (Acting) Returning Officer
  • polling station premises

The Polling District and Polling Station Review is now closed. Please see returning officer comments below.
