Notice of Review

Birmingham City Council is conducting a review of its polling districts and polling places as required by the Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places (Parliamentary Elections) Regulations 2006, as amended by the Electoral and Administration Act 2013.

The Notice of Review is published below.


What does the review involve?
This review is an opportunity for electors, community groups and any other interested parties within Birmingham to express their views on the existing polling district boundaries and polling places, and where possible make alternative suggestions for consideration. The council also welcomes comments or representations from any elected members in the area, local political representatives and any person or body with expertise in access for persons with any type of disability.

At the start of the process, a notice must be published with details of the review, including when and where comments or representations can be made in relation to the review.

Stephen Hughes, Acting Returning Officer, has made comments on existing arrangements, and suggested amendments.

All are invited to take part in the consultation process by completing the questionnaire attached below, or by sending comments in the form of a letter to Robert Connelly, Head of Electoral Services at the Elections Office, or by e-mail to elections@birmingham.gov.uk


Once the review is completed, the authority must publish all correspondence sent and received, details of the results of the review including any issues raised and indeed any changes which have been approved, giving the reasons for its decisions. A copy of the Acting Returning Officer’s report will be published on this website.

All proposals and comments will be available for inspection at the Elections Office, when published at the conclusion of the review.
