Markham Moor Inn:

Location – Located in the polling district of EA9 with good access from the other locations.

Premises - Access to the room in which the polling station is located is adequate. Heating and lighting adequate.

There has been a comment from a Member of the public that Gamston School is a better location than Markham Moor Inn. The Acting Returning Officer considers that Markham Moor Inn is a central location within the polling districts. The Council is also keen to minimise the use of schools where possible to avoid disruption. In the past the school has been reluctant to be used as a polling station.

It is also noted Markham Moor Inn has been used successfully for the previous two elections with good facilities. There have been positive comments from the polling staff on the use of Markham Moor Inn.

The (Acting) Returning Officer therefore proposes that Markham Moor Inn be used as the Polling Station for future elections.

The (Acting) Retuning Officer proposes that polling district KA5 be allocated to the polling station at Harworth Town Hall to reduce the electorate allocated to the community centre given the size of the polling station.
