Electoral Review of West Berkshire Council

Have your say on our ward boundaries

The aim of the electoral review is to recommend changes to the ward boundaries that mean each councillor represents approximately the same number of voters.

The LGBCE also aims to ensure that the pattern of wards reflects the interests and identities of local communities, as well as promoting effective local government. In order to achieve these aims, ward boundaries across West Berkshire need to be re-drawn.

The initial consultation ran from 24 January to 10 April 2017. In response to feedback, and an updated projection following the approval of the Housing Site Allocations Development Plan Document (HSADPD), a second round of consultation ran between 13 June and 10 July 2017.

The current consultation on the LGBCEs draft recommendation, which runs between 29 August to 13 November 2017, and can be viewed by visiting the Commission's consultation portal. The final recommendation will be published on 16 January 2018.

Submissions can also be made by email to reviews@lgbce.org.uk or by post to the Local Government Boundary Commission for England.

New electoral arrangements for the West Berkshire are scheduled to come into effect at the council elections in 2019.
