   Your view needed - 2017 Polling District and Polling Places Review     30 August, 2017

Bracknell Forest Council is carrying out a review of polling districts and polling places in the borough.                                                                                

The council is taking the opportunity to review its polling stations at the same time.

Bracknell Forest would like views from local residents and stakeholders in the borough, including any issues regarding access to premises or facilities for persons with disabilities. Any elector can make their views known.

In encouraging views, it is of course the case that the availability of suitable polling places is the key determining factor in the makeup of polling districts. Therefore, in asking for comments, we request that alternative proposals should include suggestions for polling station locations.

·        The consultation will begin on 11 September 2017 through to 13 November 2017.

·        Any new polling arrangements will be agreed by Council on 12 September 2018 and put in place by 1 December 2018, in accordance with Bracknell Forest Council’s constitution.

As part of consultation process, Bracknell Forest would like to make sure that all recommendations and suggestions from all residents in the borough, including Parish councillors and residents, are considered.

Bracknell Forest will also publish links to their consultation portal on the day the review starts, 11 September 2017, and Binfield Parish Council will add a future News item to our website containing this link.
