Residents in Bolton are being invited to give their views on how the borough is divided up into voting districts.

This comes after a commission made its final recommendations for how the boundaries should be drawn up across the borough ahead of next year’s council elections.

But the public still has a chance to make their views on the proposals known.

A council statement said: “For voting purposes, Bolton’s 20 council wards are divided into polling districts - each with its own polling station.

“The council reviews these districts regularly to make sure polling stations are fit for purpose and in the right place to meet the needs of the community.

“This next review will also factor in the upcoming changes to ward boundaries.

“Earlier this year, the Local Government Boundary Commission made its final recommendations for a new ward map for Bolton which will be used from next year’s elections.”

It added: “The public can share their views and proposals for polling districts from July 11 until August 1.”

A map of the new boundaries can be found on the Local Government Boundary Commissions website.

Anyone wanting to give their views can email or send post to The Elections Office, Bolton Council, Howell Croft North, Bolton BL1 1QY.
