From July 2018, the Commission is beginning a three-year programme of electoral reviews of London Boroughs, that it has not reviewed in the last 5 years.
An electoral review recommends new ward boundaries that mean each councillor will represent approximately the same number of voters. We also aim to ensure that the pattern of wards reflect the interests and identities of local communities as well as promoting effective local government.
All London boroughs, except Southwark Council, Tower Hamlets Council, the London Borough of Bexley, Croydon Council, Redbridge Council, Hackney Council, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, and the City of London, will be reviewed by 2020.
For more information, please see this link.
It is Commission policy not to open public consultations in the weeks leading up to elections. Given the possibility of European elections on 23 May 2019, our warding and councillor numbers consultation launch for Kingston-Upon-Thames Borough Council has been postponed. An updated timetable for our review of Kingston Upon Thames can be found above.
