Have your say on review of polling stations

Derbyshire Dales residents are being asked for their views as part of the council’s review of its polling districts, places and stations. 

Every local authority must review its polling districts and polling places every five years, with a public consultation forming part of that review. 

A polling district is a geographical area created by the sub-division of an electoral area, such as a constituency, district ward or division into smaller parts.  A polling place is the building or area in which polling stations are located.  A polling station is the room or area within the polling place where voting takes place.

The first consultation stage of the Review ran from 1 August to 2 September and the comments received, together with the comments of the Acting Returning Officer, were reported to Council on 26 September. 

Proposals include the relocation of the current portakabin in Shawcroft carpark to Ashbourne Library, a new polling station in Cressbrook and the removal of polling stations in Curbar, Great Hucklow, Mappleton, Edensor and Sheldon.

There is now a second opportunity to submit comments on the proposals. 

More details including the report to council, maps of the polling station locations and an online survey can be found at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/review
