Polling district and polling places reviewed by Wycombe District Council

| October 9, 2014

WDC Offices, Queen Victoria Road

Under the Representation of the People Act 1983, Wycombe District Council are required divide the Wycombe District into polling districts and to designate a polling place for each district.

The Electoral Administration Act 2006 introduced amendments to the 1983 Act. Wycombe District Council must conduct a full review of its polling districts and polling places every four years. The last formal review in Wycombe took place in 2011/2012.

The current review runs from Monday 6th October 2014 to Wednesday 5th November 2014.

Adjustments to the boundaries of polling districts and the designation of polling places within district council wards can be proposed at any time in response to changes in ward boundaries or to the availability of premises that can be reasonably designated as polling places.

Changes to district, ward and county division boundaries can only be made by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) as part of a formal review. The latest boundary changes review carried out by the LGBCE in this area was for Buckinghamshire County Council in 2011/2012. This review resulted in some significant changes and an overall reduction in the number of county councillors, effective from the elections to be held on Thursday 2nd May 2013. The changes also mean that all county council divisions are now single-member.
