Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places 2019

In accordance with the provisions of the Representation of the People Act 1983 and Section 16 of the Electoral Administration Act 2006 the Council must undertake a review of the polling districts and polling places within its area every four years and the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 requires that a compulsory review must be completed between 1 October 2018 and 31 January 2020.

The Council commenced its review on 9 July with an eight-week consultation period. The Acting Returning Officer (ARO) revised his recommendations in response to the consultation period, which were considered by the General Purposes Committee on 15 October. The revised recommendations were due to be considered and approved by the Council on 21 November; however, following the announcement of a General Election on 12 December 2019, the decision was taken to bring forward the approval of the ARO's recommendations. Following consultation with Group Leaders, the Managing Director took an urgent decision to approve the recommendations and implement with effect from the publication of the revised electoral register on 4 November. 

The timetable for the review and documents relating to the review are set out below.
