As of July 2018, the Commission has begun a three-year programme of electoral reviews of London Boroughs that it has not reviewed in the last 5 years.
This will mean that 25 of London’s 32 Boroughs will be reviewed before the end of 2020.
As a result, the Commission is now carrying out an electoral review of the London Borough of Westminster.
The aim of the electoral review is to recommend ward boundaries that mean each councillor represents approximately the same number of voters.
We also aim to ensure that the ward boundaries reflect the interests and identities of local communities, as well as promoting effective local government.
To achieve these aims, we need to re-draw ward boundaries across Westminster. You can find out more about the review below.
During the development of our draft recommendations, we noted that the authority-wide proposals received had used slightly different elector forecast numbers to those agreed at the beginning of the review. In light of this, we considered we needed more time to consider our draft recommendations. We have therefore decided to postpone agreement of the recommendations from the August Commission meeting until our meeting in September 2019. The timetable at the top of this page reflects the changes to the review milestones.
