image map Final recommendations

The Commission carried out an electoral review of Wyre between October 2012 - May 2014. 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 Wyre councillor represented roughly the same number of voters and that ward boundaries reflected the interests and identities of local communities.

Recommendations become law

The Wrye (Electoral Changes) Order 2014, to implement recommendations made by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) for new boundaries in Wyre, was made on 7 May 2014 and was published 13 May 2014). New ward arrangements for Wyre have now successfully completed a 40 day period of Parliamentary scrutiny and will come into force at the local elections in 2015.

On 23 October 2012 we started an electoral review of Wyre Council. From 23 October to 3 December 2012 we invited proposals for the number of councillors who should represent Wyre Council.

The first stage of an electoral review is to determine the number of councillors who should represent the local authority in future, we call this stage 'council size'. During the preliminary stage of the review, the Commission received a proposal from Wyre Council and the Wyre Labour group. These submissions are available below; under preliminary council size.

The Commission has considered these submissions and has sought views on its proposals for a council size of 50 members for Wyre Council.

A letter to the Chief Executive of Wyre Council (PDF) and our public news release provide more details on this consultation and the review in general.

We will consider the number, names and boundaries of wards during two further periods of public consultation later in 2013.

Consultation closed 3 December 2012
