Interim review of polling districts and polling places

We are undertaking an interim review of certain polling districts and polling places.

Final recommendations from a recent review of the electoral arrangements for Lincolnshire County Council by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England were published in August 2016.

The final recommendations and an interactive map of the current and new county division boundaries in South Kesteven are available to view on the Boundary Commission's website.

Following the Electoral Review it is necessary to review certain polling districts and polling places to take account of the new division boundaries. Polling districts are the areas into which district wards are divided and polling places are the locations of buildings in which polling stations are established. Polling districts can be created as an electoral requirement but also as a means to provide a more conveniently located polling station for the electorate.

The consultation on the Returning Officer's draft proposals for future polling arrangements closed on 14 October 2016. The feedback we received as part of the consultation will now be considered and used to inform a report that will be submitted to Council on 17 November 2016. A schedule of the Returning Officer's proposals together with the consultation feedback will be published on this page once it has been reviewed.
