Review of polling districts and polling places

Review of polling districts and polling places

Following the latest ward boundary review published in March 2022 by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE), new ward boundaries have been drawn up for the district of Stratford-on-Avon.

View the LGBCE new boundary interactive map and recommendations.

As a consequence of the boundary changes, the Council is required to review the locations of the polling districts and polling places to make sure that these are in the right areas for the new wards as these new ward boundaries will be used for next year's local elections.

The boundary review may mean that the ward you vote in has changed. It also means that your polling station may change, so you may be voting in a different place in the 2023 local elections.

To clarify the above terms:

  • a polling district is an administrative area within a ward that helps the council to run elections
  • a polling place is where you go to vote in a local or general election and a polling station is the room you vote in

Concluding the review

Following consideration of any representations made to the Returning Officer as part of the second consultation period, proposals for polling districts (all polling districts to be confirmed by 1 February 2023) and polling places, were duly approved by the Council's Audit and Standards Committee at its meeting held on 14 November 2022 and by Full Council, at its meeting held on 12 December 2022 minutes
