Electoral Review of West Berkshire Council

Have your say on our ward boundaries - extended consultation

The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) is carrying out an additional round of consultation on the electoral review of West Berkshire Council.

The aim of the electoral review is to recommend 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 LGBCE needs information from people and groups across West Berkshire, to help it to produce a new pattern of wards to accommodate the recommended 42 councillors.

The additional consultation is open from 13 June to 10 July 2017 and can be viewed by visiting the Commission's consultation portal.

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

There will be a further consultation on the draft recommendations between 29 August to 6 November 2017, with the final recommendations being published on 16 January 2018. New electoral arrangements for the West Berkshire are scheduled to come into effect at the council elections in 2019.
