Polling district and polling places review
Following the outcome of the Local Government Boundary Commission for England's (LGBCE) electoral review of the Royal Borough, a review of each ward's polling districts and designated polling places will follow this autumn.
It is necessary for the Borough to review its internal polling districts and polling places to ensure that the polling places remain convenient and accessible for electors on the day of elections. The responsibility for defining the polling districts and polling places is the responsibility of the Royal Borough, whilst the responsibility for drawing the ward boundaries was the LGBCE's.
The Royal Borough has devised a provisional scheme of polling district and polling places which will take effect at the next scheduled elections on Thursday 2 May 2019 and will be inviting residents' responses and feedback to this scheme between Monday 1 October - Friday 9 November 2018.
Following the close of the first consultation, there may be amendments made to the scheme in light of the public's feedback. Where changes are proposed, a second consultation will run for three weeks on the revised scheme between Friday 23 November - Friday 14 December 2018.
The decision on the final scheme will be made by the end of December and Council will approve the changes at a meeting in January 2019.
Consultation 1 (Monday 1 October - Friday 9 November 2018)
We are inviting comments on the draft polling district and polling places scheme until Friday 9 November. We are particularly keen to hear how the proposed electoral arrangements might affect electors with a disability.
The consultation documents are:
Polling district and polling places scheme (Provisional). This document lists all of the polling districts, their corresponding polling places and an indication as to whether there is a change to the current arrangements.
Polling district maps. There is a map for each polling district, showing the boundary area (in yellow) and the location of the polling place.
You can view the interactive map to see how polling district boundaries and polling stations might change.
