Under the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013, all local authorities must undertake a review of all Polling Districts and Polling Places by 31 January 2015.  Subsequent reviews must then take place every five years. 

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England recently conducted an electoral review of Peterborough and published the final recommendations. These recommendations are available to view on the Boundary Commissions website along with an interactive map. 

The Electoral Review for Peterborough will result in an increase to the number of members from 57 to 60, and a reduction in the number of wards from 24 to 22. These changes will come into force at the next full council elections in May 2016.

Following the Electoral Review it is necessary to review the polling districts and places to realign them to the new wards. Polling Districts are the areas into which Wards are divided and Polling Places are the locations of buildings in which Polling Stations are established.

A review of the Polling Districts and Polling Places used for elections within the Peterborough started on 11 November 2015.

What will the review cover?

The review requires us to: 

  • Seek to ensure that all electors in the area have reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable in the circumstances.
  • Seek to ensure that so far as is reasonable and practicable, every polling place is accessible to electors who are disabled and when considering the designation of a polling place, must have regard to the accessibility needs of disabled persons.

Please note: the following are not considered as part of the review:

The changing of any District Ward boundaries (which can only be done by statue following an electoral review carried out by the Local Government Boundary Commission).  This review is concerned only with the administrative subdivision of the new Wards into Polling Districts which are then assigned Polling Places;

Or 

The changing of Polling Districts in areas that is also aligned with Parish boundaries and therefore cannot be amended during this review (these can only be amended during a Community Governance Review).
