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.
It is Commission policy not to open public consultations in the weeks leading up to elections. Given that Parliament has confirmed a General Election will take place on 12 December 2019, our draft recommendations consultation period has been extended. An updated timetable for our review of Westminster can be found above.
