Notice is hereby given that Uttlesford District Council is to carry out a statutory review of polling districts and polling places within the Uttlesford District Council area in accordance with Section 18 (C) 1 of the Representation of the People Act 1983.

General Election 2019
For the General Election on 12 December we have published a list of all the polling places. These are shown on the Icon for pdf Notice of Situation of Polling Stations, Saffron Walden Constituency - UK Parliamentary General Election 2019 [35.13KB] 

 

The Returning Officer will make a comment on proposed polling stations and has indicated an intention where possible to avoid the use of schools as polling stations and consider suitable alternatives.

Electors and interested organisations within the authority or within the Saffron Walden Parliamentary constituency may make a representation.

The council would welcome any person or body with expertise in access for persons with any type of disability to make a representation or to comment on the authority's proposals.

Persons or bodies making representations should, if possible, give details of suitable alternative venues that may be used as polling places.

Details of the existing arrangements are available for inspection at the Council Offices, London Road, Saffron Walden, Essex  CB11 4ER

 or you can see them on our Current polling district arrangements page.
