Review of Polling District, Polling Places and Polling Stations


Polling District Reviews

The Representation of the People Act places a duty on the Council to divide the District into polling districts and to designate polling places for each district.  The Council also has a duty to keep those arrangements under review.  The last full review was conducted in 2014.  There have been two interim reviews conducted in 2017.  The first was to consider the LGBCE's changes to the County Councils divisional areas within the district.  The second was to consider the reduction in ward councillors and the amended ward and parish areas within the district.

The next full review, which is this review needs to be completed by January 2020.
