Have your say – Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places

Ensuring they continue to meet the needs of voters.

A review of the existing polling districts and polling places situated within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets encompassing the Parliamentary Constituencies of Poplar and Limehouse and Bethnal Green and Bow will be carried out with a formal consultation from Friday 23 August 2019 to Friday 18 October 2019.

This will be followed by a final decision to be made by the Council on Wednesday 15 January 2020. The review must be concluded by 31 January 2020.

The Council is looking for feedback on any aspect of the polling districts and/or polling places currently used and invites representation and comments from interested persons.

Local political parties and Councillors will also be consulted and views are invited from electors and local community groups within the Parliamentary Constituencies detailed above. Views and comments are also sought from those that have a particular expertise in relation to access to premises or facilities for persons who have different forms of disability.

Although the review is of polling districts and polling places it is accepted that polling stations are inexorably linked to the review and comments are invited regarding those stations currently used and/or any suggested alternatives.

Information regarding the current polling districts and places can be found on the Council’s website www.towerhamlets.gov.uk/PDreview2019 or from the Electoral Services team at the Town Hall, Mulberry Place, 5 Clove Crescent, London E14 2BG.

Maps of the existing polling districts and polling places can be viewed on the council’s website or hard copies can be viewed at the Town Hall. The website also includes further background information and further explanation of certain words and phrases used.
