Tameside Council is reviewing polling places across the borough. As part of the review they’re doing a public consultation exercise.
The background to and basis of the review is set out in the background documentation on the council website. In addition proposals for each of the Council’s 19 wards are put forward for comment, with maps showing current and proposed arrangements. All new polling stations are assessed for suitability before final agreement to proposals.
At its meeting on 22 February the full Council will determine future polling district and polling place arrangements, so comments are sought by 5pm on Thursday, 10 February 2011.
All comments must be in writing either by sending an email through the council’s special online form or by writing to: Robert Landon, Head of Democratic Services, Tameside MBC, Council Offices, Wellington Road, Ashton-under-Lyne, OL6 6DL.
