(If any)

 

Delegation to the Chief Executive from Council (12 July 2017)

 

“That the power to designate polling places in accordance with section 18B of the Representation of the People Act 1983 be delegated to the Chief Executive, such power to be exercised only in circumstances where a decision is required at short notice and it is not possible to await a decision of Council.”

 

Brief Description of Decision:

 

 

To designate Bevan Crescent Neighbourhood Centre in Maltby as the polling place for the IA polling district and Treeton Community Centre as the polling place for the KA polling district.

 

Reasons for the Decision:

 

 

 

In March 2019, the Government advised Returning Officers to plan for the administration and management of elections to the European Parliament on 23 May 2019. As such, the Returning Officer commenced the process of formally booking polling place venues for the election. Two venues are no longer available:-

 

·      Maltby Linx Youth Centre (IA)

·      Treeton Youth Centre (KA)

 

In view of the proximity of the European Parliamentary election, it is necessary for the Chief Executive to exercise delegated powers to designate alternative locations as polling places for those polling districts

 

Details of Alternative Options Considered and Rejected:

 

No other alternatives have been identified and it is necessary to proceed with the venues identified in view of the proximity of the European Parliament election on 23 May 2019.

 

Where the decision is made under specific delegation from a decision making body, the names of any member of the relevant body who has declared a conflict of interest in relation to the decision and name of the body granting the specific delegation and the date when it did so:

 

None
