Polling district review

We reviewed all our polling districts and polling stations following recommendations made by Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE), and implemented changes after the council elections in May 2015.

Further information

The changes were approved by a meeting of our Full Council.

Documents highlighting the detailed reasons for the review (Appendix A), along with correspondence and representations we've received (Appendix B), are available on our Agendas and Minutes website

Hard copies of the supporting documentation are also available at our Granby Street Customer Services Centre.

Why we did this

Our review was prompted by recommendations published by LGBCE in August 2014 after their review of our electoral arrangements carried out during 2013-14.

That review resulted in changes to the number and boundaries of wards in Leicester, which was implemented following the council elections in May 2015.

Public consultation

We held a public consultation on the review process, which closed on Friday 24th October 2014. You can find out more on our Consultation website.
