Windsor and Maidenhead

The Commission is carrying out an electoral review of Windsor and Maidenhead.

 

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. In order to achieve these aims, we need to re-draw ward boundaries across Windsor and Maidenhead.

The consultation on warding arrangements for the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead has now closed.


On 26 September 2017, we started the first period of consultation for a pattern of wards for the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. Between 26 September 2017 and 4 December 2017, we invited comments on the ward boundaries for the authority.

The Commission also announced that it was minded to recommend that the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead should have 43 councillors in the future.

For more information, read our news release and the letter to the Chief Executive of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

You may have found the electoral figures useful when thinking about warding arrangements.
