Review of Polling Districts, Polling Places and Polling Stations

Review of Polling Districts and Places 2023

Every council is required to undertake and complete a review of all polling districts and polling places within its administrative boundary at least once every five years. The last review was completed in January 2020. The new review begins 9 October 2023 and ends 16 November 2023.

The aim of the review is to ensure that:

  • electors in the constituency have such reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable in the circumstances
  • as far as is reasonable and practicable, the polling places the council is responsible for are accessible to all electors and, when considering the designation of a polling place, must have regard to the accessibility needs of disabled persons

The review will not consider ward boundaries, divisions or parliamentary constituencies.

The final recommendations were formally approved by council at their meeting on 14 December 2023.  No changes were made.
