PEOPLE across the Keighley district are being asked for their views on polling stations.

The move is part of a statutory review by Bradford Council.

The suitability of buildings – including disabled access – and possible alternative locations are being considered as part of the district-wide assessment.

Under electoral law, local authorities are required to carry out a review every four years.

In addition, the council conducts its own internal review of polling stations annually and the information from that will form part of the statutory assessment.

Susan Saunders, the council’s electoral services manager, said: “This is a very worthwhile exercise as local residents know their neighbourhoods best.

“Over time new developments are built and areas change so we need to check the suitability of the existing arrangements.

“For example, there may be a community facility built recently that would be a better choice than an existing polling station.”

Any comments should be made in writing to Electoral Services, City Hall, Bradford BD1 1HY or by e-mail to

Responses will be made available to view at the Electoral Services office and the results of the review will be published in November.

The deadline for comments is August 5.
