    In accordance with the Representation of the People Act and The Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013, the Acting Returning Officer is required to undertake a review of the UK Parliamentary polling districts and places within the Stroud District by the 31 January 2020. Minchinhampton, Kingswood and Wotton-under-Edge (excluding Stinchcombe) fall under Cotswold Constituency for Parliamentary Elections therefore Cotswold District Council’s Acting Returning Officer will also need to comment on these polling districts within 30 days of us publishing the commencement notice of review on Monday 12 August.

    Our review will formally start on Monday 12 August 2019. This will commence the public consultation period which will end on Monday 7 October 2019. Once concluded, Electoral Services will consider all representations made and produce the final recommendations which will be considered by Full Council on Thursday 19 December 2019. If agreed, the amendments will come into effect when the revised electoral register is published on Saturday 1 February 2020.

    Further information on the polling review can be found on the website here along with the polling district and place consultation report and the online survey to make a submission. If you wish to make a submission, please ensure you have read the consultation report thoroughly before making a submission.
