The independent Local Government Boundary Commission is reviewing Telford and Wrekin.
The final proposals for the new pattern of wards in Telford and Wrekin have been published on the Boundary Commission website.
A review takes around a year to complete and has three main parts:
- the Commission will consider what the total number of Councillors that should be elected to the authority in future should be, to ensure effective Local Government
- once the Commission has taken a view on Councillor numbers, they will re-draw ward boundaries to accommodate those Councillors according to three statutory criteria, namely: that the new wards deliver electoral equality for voters, that they reflect community interests, and that they promote effective Local Government
- once the Commission has published final recommendations for each authority, they will lay a draft order - specific to each council - in Parliament. Subject to the parliamentary scrutiny process, they will then make each order and new boundaries would come into effect at the next local election in 2023.
