Polling district review 2016/17
Review of Polling Places and Polling Districts 2016/17
The Council has just been through a review of its electoral arrangements, carried out by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England. This followed on from a review of the electoral arrangements for Cambridgeshire County Council. Full details of these reviews can be viewed on the LGBCE website.
As a result of these reviews, the Council has looked at some of its polling districts to make sure that elections can be run for the newly created wards and divisions. Changes to polling district arrangements were approved at a Council meeting in January 2017, and the register of electors was revised on 1 February 2017 to reflect the changes.
In particular, the changes made by this interim review were:
1. To split the existing polling district RA1 (Fen Ditton) into two polling districts, RA1 (Fen Ditton West) and RA2 (Fen Ditton East). These two new polling districts reflect the new parish wards for Fen Ditton that have been put in place by the LGBCE.
2. To split the existing polling district of PG1 (Haslingfield) to create a new polling district of PG2 (South Trumpington). Since this decision, the Council has formally decided to create a new parish at South Trumpington and the creation of a new polling district will support residents of this new parish.
The Council will need to carry out another polling district review (this time of the whole district) before the next General Election in 2020.
