CHANGES to a number of polling places across Moray have been proposed after a review by the council.

Moray Council's statutory review of polling districts and places sees the addition of a polling place at Moray Sports Centre in Elgin City South.

Changes to the polling districts across New Elgin will move voters away from Greenwards Primary School, New Elgin Hall and Ashgrove Hall to the new venue.

In Forres there is a change to the polling district boundaries to alleviate pressure on the town hall. This may mean the polling place local voters attend will change.

In addition, the polling place at Victoria Hotel will be replaced with Pilmuir Primary School's hall – with the school remaining open on polling day.

Alves Primary School's hall will no longer be a polling place with voters instead using Alves Town Hall.

In Lossiemouth, the polling place within the community centre will be replaced with a polling place in the community area of the new Lossiemouth High School.

There are also set to be some changes to the polling district which will see some voters move to Lossiemouth Town Hall to create more capacity for additional voters at the new high school in the future.

These proposals, along with other minor amendments to polling districts, are now out for public consultation.

More information, including how you can make comment, is available on Moray Council’s website until November 19.
