Have your say

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.

We 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 legal criteria which we must follow when drawing up electoral arrangements:

  • to deliver electoral equality: where each councillor represents roughly the same number of electors as others across the borough;
  • that the pattern of wards 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.Poster landscape
