Polling District Review - Stage 2 Consultation

Closes 7 Oct 2022

Opened 25 Aug 2022

Overview

Introduction

Following the latest ward boundary review published in April by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE), new ward boundaries have been drawn up for Stockport. You can see these on the LGBCE website. The new ward boundaries will be used for next year’s local elections.  

For six weeks between 7 July and 18 August, we asked you for your views on our proposed changes and for your thoughts around our proposals for polling stations and polling districts.

We are now asking for your views on the proposed changes following the first round of the consultation. We are now consulting on the changes that were proposed during the first round of consultation and we are keen to hear your views. In addition we would welcome any other suggestions you may have to the proposed polling districts and polling stations across the whole of Stockport.

Why your views matter

The boundary review may mean that the ward you vote in has changed. It also means that your polling station may change, so you may be voting in a different place in the 2023 local elections.  

Following responses to our previous consultation, we have now made a number of changes and we want your views on these proposed polling district and polling station changes.

Do I have to take part?

No, you do not have to take part, but the more people who tell us what they think of the proposals, the more chance there is for us to get it right. If you choose not to take part, you will not lose your chance to vote.
