Polling district review 2016/17

Every five years, we're required to carry out a review of our polling district boundaries and their polling places. The last scheduled review was in 2013.

The Boundary Commission for England have reviewed the electoral division boundaries for Cambridgeshire County Council and these will take effect at the next scheduled county council elections in May 2017. There will now be 12 county electoral divisions in the Cambridge city council area (previously it was 14). Please note that the 14 city council wards have not changed, which means the boundaries for the county council divisions and city council wards are no longer the same.

We are therefore conducting a review of our polling districts to take acount of the changes to the county electoral division boundaries. Read the official notice of review [PDF, 24kB].

You can see maps and street lists of the twelve new county council electoral divisions in Cambridge City showing the proposed polling districts.

We are also seeking new polling station locations for some of the new polling districts and would welcome suggestions for suitable sites. View the proposed polling station locations [PDF, 13kB]. You can also see lists showing how the new county divisions sit within the current city wards:

We have, wherever possible, retained existing polling district boundaries and their polling stations in order to ensure the boundary changes affect as few electors as possible. 

Representations, comments and questions, etc. should be submitted in writing to Electoral Services, Cambridge City Council, PO Box 700, Cambridge, CB1 0JH or alternatively by email to elections@cambridge.gov.uk

Comments must be received by Friday 20 January 2017.
