Basingstoke and Deane

The Commission has paused its electoral review of Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council.

At its meeting in February 2018, the Commission will consider evidence on the number of councillors who should be elected to the council in future. It will then open a new phase of consultation on ward boundaries.
On 28 November, the Commission announced its view that the council should have 54 councillors in future. It took the decision on the basis of evidence gathered at an earlier stage of the review. The Commission subsequently became aware that, due to an administrative error, the Commission had not considered the totality of evidence supplied by councillors and council groups before it took its decision. Due to the importance the Commission attaches to considering all submissions presented to it, it has decided to re-consider all the preliminary evidence before it takes its decision on councillor numbers again.
Once the Commission has taken its view on councillor numbers, we will start a new phase on ward boundaries and we will update the timetable for the review accordingly.
If you have already submitted views on new ward boundaries for the council, we will consider your representation when we draw up draft recommendations. You will also have another opportunity to participate in the consultation when we open it again in February. Anyone who has already participated in the review will be contacted to let them know when the review will re-start. 



On 28 November 2017, we started the first period of consultation for a pattern of wards for Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council. Between 28 November 2017 and 12 February 2018, we are inviting comments on the ward boundaries for the authority.

The Commission has also announced that it is minded to recommend that Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council should have 54 councillors in the future.

The Commission now needs information from people and groups across Basingstoke and Deane to help it to produce a new pattern of wards to accommodate 54 councillors.

For more information, read our news release and the letter to the Chief Executive of Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council.

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

Polling district maps may also be useful when thinking about warding arrangements. You can view the polling district maps below. Please note, polling district mapping data has been supplied by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and may contain boundary errors.
