A consultation on changes to some voting arrangements in North Norfolk has opened and will run until the end of 2018

In accordance with Section 17 of the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013, North Norfolk District Council gives notice that it is consulting on a review of Polling Districts and Polling Places for Parliamentary and Local Government Elections across its area.

In addition, the review will have regard to the outcome of the 2017 review of the District Council’s electoral arrangements undertaken by the Local Government Boundary Committee for England.  This review has agreed that from the next North Norfolk District Council elections in May 2019, there will be 40 councillors representing 32 wards across the District, instead of the current 48 councillors representing 34 wards.

The boundaries of some polling districts and location of some polling places in North Norfolk could therefore change as part of the review.

However, before any changes can come into force, a public consultation process is being held to ask people whether they have comments or suggestions on the Council’s proposals.

Each local authority area is divided into polling districts, with one or more polling districts making up a district ward. A polling place is an area or building within a polling district in which a polling station is situated.  The review asks people whether current polling places are convenient to serve the communities in which they are located and whether they are accessible to all people wanting to vote in person at a polling station.

What changes are being proposed?

In conducting its Review of Polling Districts and Places, the District Council has proposed that the existing arrangements across the vast majority (114 out of 138) of polling districts, places and stations in the District will not be the subject of any change.

  • 8 propose no change to the polling district or polling place, but make alternative proposals for the polling station based on a range of factors including accessibility, more suitable new building, or cost
  • 10 propose minor changes to polling district boundaries (all in towns to reflect new district and parish ward boundaries) but with no changes to the location of polling stations for the majority of electors in those areas
  • 6 propose changes to polling district boundaries (all in towns to reflect the new district and parish ward boundaries) and alternative locations for polling stations based on a combination of the new ward boundaries, accessibility and more suitable buildings.

How to take part

All of the relevant information about proposed changes can be found in these documents:

Once you have read the documents, we invite you to give your views by contacting us at haveyoursay@north-norfolk.gov.uk.

The deadline for consultation responses is 31st December 2018. Thereafter the District Council will review the submissions received and publish the outcome of the review in February 2019; with any new arrangements being effective for all elections in the District from 1st April 2019.
