We are currently carrying out a review of polling districts and polling places in the city. We are taking the opportunity to review our polling stations at the same time.
Details of the current polling station arrangements are available on our wards and polling districts page.
The review will consider comments and suggestions from local residents and stakeholders in the city. This includes any issues regarding access to premises or facilities for people with disabilities.
In addition, the review will consider the impact of the next 4 years' worth of planned residential developments on existing electoral arrangements.
The consultation period will last or a period of six weeks, from Monday 6 November until Monday 18 December.
