RESOLVED TO RECOMMEND

 

1.    That Council confirm the following Polling Stations for the elections to be held on 2 May 2019:

 

  1. That the administrators of the Church Hall, St Mary and Joseph, on St John’s Road be approached to host the Polling Station Boxmoor Ward, polling district AGB. In the event of the Church Hall not being available then Camelot RFC be confirmed as the temporary Polling Station for the AGB District for the election on 2 May 2019.

 

  1. That the polling station for Tring East Ward, polling district DAA, be moved from Grove Road Primary School to the Scout Hut, Grove Road.

 

  1. That the polling station for the Nash Mills Ward, polling districts BA, BAA, and BAB, be moved from Nash Mills C of E School to Nash Mills Parish Village Hall, Lower Road, Nash Mills

 

  1. That, in the event that Communal Hall is not available, electors in polling district AC will be redirected to the temporary Polling Station in Adeyfield Community Centre; where they will be admitted through a separate entrance

 

2.    That the above polling arrangements be included in a revised Polling Places Order to be presented at a future Council Meeting.

 

(Note: since the above meeting St Mary and St Joseph have been contacted and due to the existence of a number of prior bookings they cannot provide the facilities we require for a polling station for the local elections in May 2019. However they have confirmed that they would be prepared to be the venue for the Polling Station in future years.)
