By way of a statutory instrument made 4 February 2016 some of the town/parish wards were changed in the Borough to be effective from the 2 May 2019 elections onwards.

The affected wards and polling districts are as follows:

Regretfully, the changes were not reflected in those wards affected when sending poll cards out to electors.

The cards referred to the election of councillors to the Borough council and to the Town council for the ward. The names of the wards of the town council/parish were incorrect as shown above. To redress the situation the council are sending a poll letter to electors where the detail is incorrect which provides the correct town council/parish ward.

The council apologises if there has been any confusion and would stress that there are no other changes. The polling stations, polling districts and elector number on the register remain the same.

The letter to the electors also stresses that there is no need to take the letter with them in order to vote
