Lincolnshire County Council

The Commission is carrying out an electoral review of Lincolnshire County Council. 


The aim of the electoral review is to recommend electoral division boundaries that mean each county councillor represents approximately the same number of voters. We also aim to ensure that the pattern of divisions reflects the interests and identities of local communities as well as promoting effective local government. In order to achieve these aims, we need to re-draw division boundaries across the county.




Consultation closed on 21 July 2015

On 12 May 2015, we started the first period of consultation for a pattern of divisions for Lincolnshire County Council. Between 12 May 2015 and 21 July 2015, we invited comments on the division boundaries for the authority.

The Commission has also announced that it is minded to recommend that the county council should have 71 county councillors in the future, 6 fewer than the current arrangements.

The Commission now needs information from people and groups across Lincolnshire to help it to produce a new pattern of electoral divisions to accommodate 71 county councillors.

For more information read our news release and the letter to the Chief Executive of Lincolnshire County Council (PDF).

You may find the electoral figures (XLS) useful when thinking about division arrangements.

Guidance is available on our Guidance page. You may also wish to read our document Electoral Reviews: Technical Guidance, which contains detailed guidance on the review process and information on the legislation reviews are carried out under.

As part of the preliminary process we consulted with Lincolnshire County Council on the most appropriate council size (the number of councillors on Lincolnshire County Council). We received 7 submissions on council size.

This review was carried out by the Local Government Commission for England (LGCE).
