HAVE YOUR SAY ON POLLING PLACE REVIEW

A REVIEW OF polling districts and polling places in Broxtowe has been launched.

Broxtowe Borough Council will start the review today (1st October) until 11th November to help ensure that all electors have good facilities for voting.

Anyone who is eligible to vote in the Broxtowe Constituency can submit their views on the size and boundaries of polling districts and the location and suitability of polling places.

Although the review is of polling districts and polling places, it is accepted that polling stations are linked to the review.

Comments or representations are also welcomed from past or potential candidates, local political parties and any person or body with expertise in access for disabled people.

The review documents which include electorate figures and forecasts, maps of polling districts and possible changes to polling district boundaries and details of polling stations, can be inspected Monday to Friday at the Council Offices, Foster Avenue, Beeston or on the Council’s website at www.broxtowe.gov.uk/pollingreview

The Council is required to complete the review between 1 October 2018 and 31 January 2019 and every five years after.

Representations should be made to:

Head of Administrative Services

Broxtowe Borough Council, Council Offices

Foster Avenue, Beeston

Nottingham, NG9 1AB

E-mail:  elections@broxtowe.gov.uk

Representations must be received by 11 November 2018.  All representations will be published on the Council’s website. A report on recommendations arising from the review will be considered by full Council on 19 December 2018.

For further information on the review process please contact Broxtowe Borough Council on 3295, email elections@broxtowe.gov.uk or visit www.broxtowe.gov.uk/pollingreview

  1. Rather than having to close the Bramcote Hills Primary/Junior School for the day as in previous Elections the Council are planning to use the Fitness Centre at the Sevenoaks Shoping Centre in Bramcote.

    Please make your views known as requested.
