For this election, there will be only one polling station at the Woodmead Halls.
The district council is considering changing to one polling station permanently in Lyme Regis and hopes this election will provide an opportunity to obtain feedback from electors for future elections.
The seat on the town council became vacant following the resignation of Cllr Daryl Turner – the town’s county councillor.
