CHANGES have been made to the location of some polling stations in Warrington following feedback from a review last year.
In Appleton the previous station at Cobbs Infant School is replaced by The Cygnets Sure Start Children's Centre.
Due to the increasing population at Chapelford a new polling district has been established there. It is separated by Burtonwood Road, and each side will have a mobile unit located as a polling station.
In Fairfield and Howley the previous station at St Oswald's Parish Club/St John's Mission will be replaced by Oakwood Avenue Primary School.
The Community House, 34 Watkin Street, will also be replaced by the Irish Club, Orford Lane.
Changes in Grappenhall and Thelwall see the Ex-Serviceman's Club replaced by Grappenhall Library. And in Great Sankey South, Great Sankey Primary School is replaced by Great Sankey Library.
In Orford voters previously using the library will move to Orford Community Hub, and those who previously used the hub will move to Tetley Walker Sports and Social Club.
A new polling station at Penketh South Primary School will replace the mobile unit at Cuerdley Green, for Penketh and Cuerdley ward.
In Poplars and Hulme/Poulton North, Cinnamon Brow Community Centre will be replaced by Cinnamon Brow CE Primary School.
Padgate Youth and Community Centre will also be replaced by Horizons School (formerly known as Longbarn Primary School).
Following comments from electors and ward councillors a new polling district has been created in Westbrook
The area has been split in half and the Callands side will vote at Callands Community Centre with Kingswood voting at Kingswood Community Centre in future elections. Westbrook Way is the boundary between the two.
During the review there have also been some changes to boundary lines with some streets changing polling districts and therefore polling stations. Letters have been sent to those affected.
Electors who are unsure of their polling station or those who would like to register for a postal vote should contact the borough council's electoral services team on 01925 442184 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
