Review of Polling Districts & Stations

The London Borough of Harrow is undertaking the 2021 statutory review of its
polling district and polling stations. See below an announcement from the Council.

“Under the provisions within the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013, the previous statutory review of all the polling districts and polling places
in Harrow was undertaken in 2019. The Local Government Boundary Commission has since reviewed all of the ward boundaries in Harrow. The number of wards will increase from 21 to 22. As
a result of this a further review of the polling districts is required before the changes are implemented and in time for the Local Elections to be held on Thursday 5 May 2022.

The proposals presented as part of this consultation have been developed by a
cross-party working group of Councillors and a Co-opted Member, working
closely alongside Council officers. We are therefore looking for feedback on any
aspect of polling district or polling places proposed and invite representations
and comments from interested persons. Views are invited from residents, political parties and local councillors, persons or groups possessing particular expertise in relation to access to premises or facilities for persons who have different forms of disability and local community
groups.

Your comments on current arrangements or representations on proposed alternative arrangements should be sent to us through the consultation website, in writing or via email to the address below by Friday 23 July 2021.

The aim of the review is to ensure that:

  • All electors have reasonable facilities for voting as are practicable in the
    circumstances; and that
  • So far as is reasonable and practicable that the polling places are
    accessible to all electors (including disabled persons) having regard to
    the accessibility needs of disabled persons.
  • To attempt to take into account current polling districts forming new
    polling districts or a major part thereof, where this can be achieved to
    ensure continuity where possible;
  • To attempt to take into account natural boundaries for example railway
    lines, major roads and rivers.

Note: The formal consultation period will end on 23 July 2021.
