List of changes proposed to polling districts across Redditch

Harry Leach 27th Sep, 2019

A LIST of changes proposed to polling districts and stations across Redditch is now out to public consultation.

Residents are invited to view the proposed changes as part of the ongoing ‘Polling Places’ review which must be carried out every five years by local authorities.

The reviews considers the provision of reasonable and accessible voting facilities for everyone, sites of polling stations, and other technical matters such as how electoral wards are subdivided.

They do not consider ward boundaries, which are a separate matter controlled by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England.

Redditch Borough Council’s review was launched in July.

Those interested in discussing alterations to current electoral arrangements were asked to suggest alternatives.

Suggestions received throughout the process have now been considered by officers and the Electoral Matters Committee of the council, and compiled into the list of proposed changes for consultation.

Darren Whitney, electoral services manager, said: “If you want to comment on the proposals please do it by October 7.

“That way your comments can be considered by our committee, which is where the decisions will be made and the conclusions published in November.”

The proposed changes are available to see on redditchbc.gov.uk website under the Elections section via the “Polling Districts, Places & Stations Review 2019” button or at Town Hall.
