INQUIRIES are being made by Cheshire West and Chester Council into a more central location for a mobile polling station in Neston.
The issue, involving polling booths at the back of Drakes Stores on Drake Road, was raised during a review by Cllr Andy Williams (Lab).
Electoral services officers said the polling station at Neston Town Hall is to remain and an additional station would incur extra costs. The charge for a mobile polling station with electricity and an engineer on standby is almost £2,500.
Officials say, however, they are looking into the possibility of a new location which involves taking account of issues such as ward boundaries and access for people with disabilities.
This will be completed in time for the police and crime commissioner’s election in November.
Cllr Keith Musgrave (Con), chairman of the borough council’s governance committee, said:“The council is required by law to review its parliamentary polling districts and polling places from time to time.
“We want to make sure we have the best, most convenient and most accessible places available locally for people.”
