Dacorum

The Boundary Committee for England began a further electoral review (FER) of Dacorum on 17 May 2005. For more information see the press release. It completed this review on 15 August 2006.

During the six week consultation period following the publication of the Boundary Committee for Englands final recommendations for Dacorum, the Electoral Commission received the following representations:

On 14 December 2006 the Electoral Commission decided to accept the recommendations of the Boundary Committee for England with the following modifications:

  • Commissioners decided that the proposed Grove Hill & Piccotts End district ward will instead be called Grovehill district ward;
  • Commissioners decided that the proposed Hemel Central district ward will instead be called Hemel Hempstead Town district ward.

On 25 January 2007 the Commission made the Borough of Dacorum (Electoral Changes) Order 2007 to implement their decision. Web and print versions of the Order are available at the Office of Public Sector Information's website. The Order describes some of the new borough wards in its Schedule and refers to a map, comprising Sheet 1, Sheet 2 and Sheet 3, of the other new borough wards and the new parish wards. Mapping of the new borough wards will be available on Ordnance Survey's election maps website just before the elections in May 2007 that will bring the new wards into force.

For more information on how the Commission implement their decisions on electoral reviews conducted by the Committee please see the Implementation Team section of the Commission's website.
