Interim Polling District Review 2018

Parliamentary polling districts and polling places in Uttlesford are being reviewed.

The council is carrying out an interim review of Parliamentary polling districts and polling places in the Uttlesford District commencing on 15 January 2018.  The stage 1 consultation period will run for eight weeks ending on Monday 19 March.
 

Review details

Uttlesford District Council has decided to review polling arrangements in those locations listed on the pdf icon Notice of Review [123kb] because of uncertainty about the long-term viability of the venues listed and to make sure that suitable and convenient polling arrangements are provided for local electors before the next election takes place.  It is not intended to review all of the polling places in Uttlesford because that will happen when the next compulsory review takes place between October 2018 and January 2020.

You can find out what is meant by "polling district" and "polling place" in the Electoral Commission guidance.  The existing polling arrangements in Uttlesford can be found in the pdf icon Scheme of Polling Districts and Places dated 1 December 2014 [254kb] (this was revised on 25 February 2016).
 

How to respond the the consultation

Comments, representations and proposals for change are welcome in writing from any individual elector or resident of the district during the stage 1 consultation period.  Elected representatives, political parties and parish councils are being consulted directly.

All representations must be sent in writing, by no later than Monday 19 March 2018, to the Electoral Services Manager.
