The Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 required a further Polling District and Polling Station Review to take place in the period of 16 months from 1 October 2018.

Publication of the conclusions of the Review

December 2019: The council has agreed the Acting Returning Officer's proposals, following approval by the Corporate Governance and Audit Committee. Details of the new polling districts and polling places for each constituency are now being put on deposit at the following places:

  • Batley and Spen Constituency
  • Address Batley Library, Market Place, Batley, WF17 5DA
  • Colne Valley Constituency
  • Address Holmfirth Library, 47 Huddersfield Road, Holmfirth, HD9 3JH

Any changes to polling district boundaries will now take effect at the next publication of the register on 1 February 2020.

Any changes to polling stations will now take effect immediately for all future elections. Where there are any changes to polling stations the poll card for the next election would indicate if the polling station has changed.

The closing date for submissions and comments in connection with the review of polling districts and polling stations was 12 July 2019. A number of comments were put forward for consideration and the (Acting) Returning Officer has made a number of recommendations and proposals resulting from these responses.
