Statutory Review of Polling Districts, Polling Places and Polling Stations

The most recent review which commenced from July 2019 is now complete and the review period has ended. The final recommendations were approved by the full Council in January 2020. The changes proposed in the review came into effect alongside the Register of Electors 2020, which was published on 31 January 2020.

The review was part of a legal requirement to periodically review the polling districts and polling places in our area. The Electoral Services Team used the opportunity to assess the polling stations which are currently in use as part of the wider review of polling districts and polling places. Submissions were requested from a variety of bodies throughout two different consultation periods.

The final report can be viewed here. 

The report contains all the submissions received, considerations which were taken and proposes changes. Any correspondence and representations received were anonymised before publication to remove the names and addresses of individuals.

Details of any further reviews will be published on this page.

2018 Boundary Review

The Boundary Commission for England is the independent organisation responsible for reviewing parliamentary constituency boundaries. The Commission has now published its final report and the recommendations have been laid in Parliament. The recommendations have been published on the website at https://boundarycommissionforengland.independent.gov.uk/2018-review/.

The Government must now prepare the Statutory Instrument necessary to implement the recommendations. This must be voted on by both Houses of Parliament. If approved, the new boundaries will be in place at the next General Election.

The next General Election is scheduled to take place in 2024.
