You can take part in the consultation by clicking the button at the top of this message or through our interactive consultation portal.

Our website includes further information about the Commission and the review.

We encourage everyone who has a view on the draft recommendations to contact us whether you support them or whether you wish to propose alternative arrangements.

Before finalising the recommendations, the Commission will consider every representation received during consultation whether it is submitted by an individual, a local group or an organisation.  We will weigh each submission against the criteria the Commission must follow when drawing up electoral arrangements:

  • to deliver electoral equality where each councillor represents roughly the same number of electors as others across borough;
  • that the pattern of wards/divisions should, as far as possible, reflect the interests and identities of local communities;
  • that the electoral arrangements should provide for effective and convenient local government.

It is important that you take account of the criteria if you are suggesting an alternative pattern of wards. You can find additional guidance and information about previous electoral reviews on our website to help you or your organisation make a submission"
