​The respondent stated this is an unsuitable Polling Place due to parking issues compared to the portacabin in Asda car park which has plenty of parking. The respondent mentioned about adding an additional portacabin to accommodate numbers at peak times.
​The proposed polling station provides improved accessibility for electors. Having considered the parking concerns, the proposed polling station allows for additional polling station staff to support a faster turnout for voters
