Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places
The last general review in Telford and Wrekin was completed by the Council in February 2015. The Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 introduced a change to the timing of compulsory reviews and UK Parliamentary polling districts and polling places reviews must be conducted at least once every four years. The next review must be completed by the end of January 2019.
The Borough’s boundaries were reviewed by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England in 2014 and changes to Borough wards have been reflected in this review. A revised electoral register based on the new boundaries was published in February 2015.
2018 review of Parliamentary constituencies
In February 2016, the Boundary Commission for England announced a new review of Parliamentary constituencies in England – called the 2018 Review. The purpose of the review is to reduce the number of constituencies in England from 650 to 600. The findings and recommendations of this review will be reported in September 2018.
