Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
Council considered a report by the Head of Governance to the Governance Committee on 9 January 2024 (circulated previously) regarding the Polling District and Place Review 2023.
The Head of Governance provided the following updates:
· Ebrington Arms, Knowle – the premises had now become available as a polling station which was the Council’s preference. However, the best alternative would be to use the Church Hall at Christchurch in Braunton and the situation would be kept under review.
· The Governance Committee at its meeting on 9 January 2024 had recommended that the Arrangements of Polling District and Places 2023 as detailed in Appendix A be adopted.
In response to a question, the Head of Governance advised that enquiries would be made in relation to the potential use of mobile libraries as polling stations.
It was moved by Councillor Norman and seconded by Councillor Bell that the recommendation be adopted.
RESOLVED that the proposed Polling District and Polling Places within the North Devon Constituency as required by the Electoral Administration Act 2006 be adopted, in accordance with appendix A, Arrangements of Polling District and Places 2023 annexed to the report.
