The recommendations from the Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland’s Fifth Statutory Review of Electoral Arrangements were approved by Scottish Ministers on 14 September 2016.
As a result of these recommendations a review of polling districts and the provision of polling places within the affected wards have now been reviewed. In addition, due to the closure of a polling venue in Brechin, a review of the polling arrangements in Brechin was also undertaken.
The review commenced on 26 October 2016 with a public consultation exercise. The closing date for submissions was 23 November 2016. The Returning Officer received no representations during the public consultation period.
