Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places 2020
We are reviewing the polling districts and polling places in Ribble Valley.
The review seeks to ensure that all electors have reasonable facilities for voting in elections and that so far as is reasonable and practicable every polling place is accessible to electors who are disabled.
Ribble Valley Borough Council last conducted a review of polling districts and polling places in 2014.
The 2020 review covers:
- polling districts - geographical areas created by the sub-division of a UK Parliamentary constituency for the purposes of a UK Parliamentary election. In England, each parish is to be a separate polling district; and
- polling places - the buildings or areas in which polling stations will be selected by the (Acting) Returning Officer.
The review does not cover ward or constituency boundaries/names, which are the responsibility of the Local Government Boundary Commission (wards) and the Parliamentary Boundary Commission (constituencies).
As part of the review a period of public consultation will take place between 20 January 2020 and 1 March 2020.
We want your views on the polling districts, the polling places and polling stations we use. We want comments from the electors of Ribble Valley, other interested parties and those who are experts in disabled access.
We will be consulting local community groups, town and parish councils and local political parties as part of the review.
Please send your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org or to Principal Policy and Performance Officer, Ribble Valley Borough Council, Council Offices, Church Walk, Clitheroe, BB7 2RA by Sunday 1st March 2020.
You can look at a list and maps of polling places.
You can also look at the current ward maps in detail. These are also available to be inspected in hard copy at the Council Offices, Church Walk, Clitheroe, Lancashire, BB7 2RA.
Ribble Valley Borough Council's Policy and Finance Committee and Full Council will consider the final proposals following the review at their meetings in March and April 2020. We will publish the results of the review on this web page.
