Notice of Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places
In accordance with The Representation of the People Act 1983 each local authority is required to carry out a review of UK Parliamentary Polling Districts and Polling Places in its area every five years. Fylde Borough Council’s next review will be carried out from 1 October 2023.
We are looking for feedback on any aspect of polling districts and polling places currently used and invite representation and comments from interested persons.
Local political parties and Councillors will be consulted and views are invited from electors within the Borough of Fylde as well as such persons as may have particular expertise in relation to access to premises or facilities for persons who have different forms of disability.
The consultation period for the review will commence on 1 October 2023 and end on 31 October 2023.
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.
Information on the proposed polling districts and polling places can be found on the Council’s website at www.fylde.gov.uk or from the Town Hall at the address provided below from the 1 October 2023.
Representations should be sent to the Electoral Services Manager by 31 October 2023 to the address below:
Electoral Services Manager
Fylde Borough Council
Lytham St Annes
E-mail – email@example.com
Representations are particularly being sought from individuals/groups with an interest/knowledge of the accessibility needs of disabled persons.
If you have any queries or require further information on this review, please contact the Electoral Services Team on 01253 658658.
