Polling Review 2022

West Lancashire Borough Council is undertaking a review of all Polling Districts and Polling Places and is inviting comments from the public on its proposals.

The Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 requires local authorities to complete a review of all parliamentary polling districts and polling places every four years.

  • A polling district is the geographical area created by sub-dividing a constituency or ward
  • A polling place is the building or area in which a polling station is located
  • A polling station is the actual room or area where voting takes place

A benefit of these reviews is to ensure that they are accessible for everyone and there are reasonable facilities for voting.

Following completion of the Electoral Review in March 2022 by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England, which will reduce the number of, and change Ward Boundaries (more information on that review can be found here), a Polling Review is required to ensure that Polling Districts and Places match these new boundaries and are convenient for voters.

The proposals were published on Monday 25 July 2022 and the public consultation is open until Monday 19 September 2022.

A copy of the Notice of Interim Polling Review 2022 can be found here.

Forward Plan 

The Forward Plan lists "key" Cabinet decisions likely to be made over the next four months. These decisions may be made by the Cabinet or, occasionally, by individual members or officers of the Council acting under delegated authority. The plan is updated and rolled forward every month. It gives information about the subject involved and shows who will make the decision and when it will be made. The plan also gives information about any consultation prior to the decision being made and advice on how you can make representations.
