South Derbyshire

The Commission carried out an electoral review of South Derbyshire between October 2009 - February 2011. The aim of the review was to deliver electoral equality for voters in local elections and recommend ward boundaries that means each councillor represented approximately the same number of electors.


Our review aimed to ensure that each South Derbyshire councillor represented roughly the same number of voters and that ward boundaries reflected the interests and identities of local communities.

Recommendations become law

The South Derbyshire (Electoral Changes) Order 2011, to implement recommendations made by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) for new boundaries in South Derbyshire, was made on 28 January 2011 and was published on 2 February 2011). New ward arrangements for South Derbyshire have now successfully completed a 40 day period of Parliamentary scrutiny and will come into force at the local elections on 5 May 2011.
