Daventry District Council is carrying out a review of polling districts, places and stations in the District. The purpose of the review is to try to ensure that electors have reasonable facilities for voting and that they are accessible for everyone with a disability, if practicable.
The Council is required by law to carry out this review, which started on 8 March 2019 and will conclude no later than 9 August 2019. There were two phases of public consultation, the details of which are outlined in the panels below.
The responses to the second phase of consultation are currently being considered and a final report will be prepared for consideration by councillors at the meeting of Full Council scheduled for 25 July 2019.
On completion of the review the Council will publish:
- All correspondence sent to the Returning Officer in connection with the review
- All correspondence sent to any person whom the Council thinks has particular expertise in relation to access to premises or facilities for persons who have different forms of disability
- All representations made by any person in connection with the review
- The minutes of meetings held by the Council to consider any changes to polling places as a result of the review
- Details of the designation of polling districts and polling places within the local authority area as a result of the review.
