Voters are being asked to comment on future polling arrangements in the Heysham Central ward.

The city council is reviewing its arrangements for voters on election day and is looking for feedback on a set of proposals it has drawn up for the area.

The city council is proposing that the Heysham Central ward is divided into two polling districts.

Using the centre of Heysham Road as a dividing line, it is proposed that all properties located on the seaward side of the ward would form one polling district and would vote at Heysham library.

All properties on the non-seaward side of the ward would form a separate polling district and would vote at Mossgate Primary School.

Submissions can be made in writing to: Polling Review, Lancaster City Council, Elections Office, Town Hall, Dalton Square, Lancaster LA1 1PJ or by email to elections@lancaster.gov.uk.

The deadline for submission is October 30 and any amendments implemented onto the Register of Electors published by the Electoral Registration Officer on January 1 2016.
