Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places 2018

Fylde Council is required to carry out a review of UK Parliamentary Polling Districts and Polling Places in its area. The review and the consultation period will be held between 1-31st October 2018 and any representations will be welcome during this period.

The ‘Notice of Review’, schedule of polling districts, ward maps and street indexes can be viewed on the Council’s website here. A copy of all the information will also be available at the Town Hall.

If you would like to make any comments or suggestions on the current polling districts and polling places please submit them by 31st October 2018. An online form has been set up on the council’s website here or alternatively email electoral@fylde.gov.uk or write to Electoral Services, Town Hall, St Annes Road West FY8 1LW.

Unlike polling districts and polling places which are fixed by the local authority, polling stations are chosen by the relevant Returning Officer for the election. Anyone wishing to make representations should, if proposing alternative polling stations, provide details of alternative premises that may be used as a polling place.

Following the consultation period, the Returning Officer will publish the draft report together with any representations for final comments in November.
