Basingstoke and Deane
The Commission is carrying out an electoral review of Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council.
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 pattern of wards reflects 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 Basingstoke and Deane.
