The Commission is carrying out an electoral review of Dartford Borough Council.

 

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. To achieve these aims, we need to re-draw ward boundaries across Dartford.

On 26 September, we started the first period of consultation for a pattern of wards for Dartford Borough Council. Between 26 September 2017 and 4 December 2017, we are inviting comments on the ward boundaries for the authority.

The Commission has also announced that it is minded to recommend that Dartford Borough Council should have 42 councillors in the future.

The Commission now needs information from people and groups across Dartford to help it to produce a new pattern of wards to accommodate 42 councillors.

For more information, read our news release and the letter to the Chief Executive of Dartford 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 map below. Please note, polling district mapping data has been supplied by Dartford Borough Council and may contain boundary errors.
