Review of polling districts and polling places
In 2019 we carried out a review to decide the polling districts and polling places that will be used in future elections.
We ran the review through a public consultation, which has now ended. The approved report is available here:
Why we needed to do this
Every 5 years, the council runs a compulsory review of UK Parliamentary polling districts and polling places.
(A polling district is a geographical area created by the sub-division of a UK Parliamentary constituency for the purposes of a UK Parliamentary election. A polling place is the building or area in which polling stations will be selected by the (Acting) Returning Officer. A polling place within a polling district must be designated so that polling stations are within easy reach of all electors from across the polling district.)
