Notice of Review
Received from Tivetshall parish clerk...
Tivetshall Parish council considered the above review at the June PC meeting and would like to recommend that Tivetshall Village Hall continues to be used as the polling station as it is currently used by both wards (References EH1 and EJ1). Using Tivetshall Village Hall has worked well in the past and the PC view is that there is no need for this to be changed.
Received from Cringleford parish clerk...
Cringleford Parish Council considered the above review at its recent meeting and agreed that Cringleford needs to retain its two separate polling stations. The parish has many retired parishioners on both sides of the A11, who have told us that they do not feel confident crossing the A11 due to the volume and speed of traffic on the road. Therefore if you removed one of the stations you would be preventing a large part of our electorate from voting.
