Lewes District Council regularly reviews the division of its area into polling districts and the places where electors are asked to vote.
A full review of the whole district is at least every five years or when a change in a particular polling place is proposed to be made.
Our last full review was carried out in 2020 and approved by the council in December 2020.
The Returning Officer has prepared a consultation document which includes comments and recommendations of the suitability of polling stations within in each polling district.
We are inviting the views of residents of the district, particularly people with a disability, on the proposals or any other related matter.
We also welcome any person or body with expertise in access for persons with any type of disability to make a representation or to comment on the authority’s proposals, the Returning Officer’s representation or any other related matter.
Persons or bodies making representations should, if possible, give alternative places that may be used as polling places.
You can make representations by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include ‘Polling Station Review’ in the subject line.
