Council seeks voters’ views on local polling districts and polling stations

Breckland Council is currently seeking the views of local residents as part of a review of all the polling districts and polling stations in Breckland.

A public consultation, which is running 1 August to 11 September, is providing people in the district with an opportunity to comment on the accessibility and suitability of the polling stations usually used by the council, while also giving them a chance to suggest alternative sites for future elections.

Maxine O’Mahony, Breckland Council’s Returning Officer, said: “We’re inviting people to tell us what they think about their current polling station’s location, parking, disability access, and facilities and, if necessary, suggest alternative venues nearby that we can consider going forward. This will help us to ensure local polling stations remain suitable and as convenient as possible for voters in upcoming elections.”

Feedback from the public consultation will help to inform a proposal which will be presented to councillors for consideration later this year.

More details about the consultation, as well as current changes being considered as part of the Acting Returning Officer’s submission, can be accessed via www.breckland.gov.uk/councilandelections
