Parish electoral arrangements review

The electoral arrangements in each of the parished areas in Medway have not been reviewed since 2003. And therefore, after the LGBCE review, the council have reviewed the parish areas. This review included the number and configuration of the parish wards, and the number of councillors that should represent each parish and parish ward.

After a consultation exercise across the whole of the parished areas, the council considered and agreed the recommendations of a cross-party working group of councillors and officers at the meeting of Full Council on 23 February 2023.

Polling districts review

In accordance with the Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places (Parliamentary Elections) Regulations 2006, as amended by the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013, Medway Council is undertaking a review of the polling districts and polling places in the borough.

View the schedule of polling districts and polling places report.

Any electors within the authority area or within the UK Parliamentary constituencies of Chatham and Aylesford, Gillingham and Rainham or Rochester and Strood may make a representation on the existing scheme.

Medway Council welcomes views of all residents, particularly disabled residents, and the comments of any person or body with expertise in access for persons with any type of disability, on the proposals.

Any person making representations or comments are invited to give alternative places that may be used as polling places as far as is possible, and are encouraged to give a reason for the alternative proposal so that it may be given appropriate consideration.

Any representations or comments on the existing schedule of polling districts and polling places should be sent to the contact details below and made in writing by:

  • post

  • fax.

We expect the outcome of the review will be considered by the Full Council meeting on 25 January 2024. The Acting Returning Officer’s comments on the proposals will be made available in the same document.

Documents relating to the review, including representations received, may be inspected at the Electoral Services team offices at Gun Wharf, Dock Road, ME4 4TR during normal office hours.
