Polling Places Review - Effects of Covid-19 and the postponement of the ward boundaries

The changes to the ward boundaries were due to take effect at the elections this May. As a result of the Coronavirus Act those changes were postponed, along with the elections, to May 2021. So the Council needs to be able to hold by-elections and other polls using the "old" boundaries between now and May 2021. To do that we need to amend the new scheme so as to be able to re-create the old scheme. This report proposes a scheme to enable that.
