North Wiltshire

The Boundary Committee for England began a further electoral review (FER) of North Wiltshire on 21 June 2005. It completed this review on 12 September 2006.

During the six weeks following the publication of the Boundary Committee's final recommendations for North Wiltshire, the Electoral Commission received the following representations:

Calne Town Council

Cherhill Parish Council

Chippenham Town Council

Minety Parish Council

Councillor Henderson

Councillor Dixon

Councillor Ireland

On 14 December 2006 the Electoral Commission decided to accept the recommendations of the Boundary Committee for England without modifications.

On 25 January 2007 the Commission made the District of North Wiltshire (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 district wards in its Schedule and refers to a map, comprising Sheet 1, Sheet 2, Sheet 3 and Sheet 4 of the other new district and parish wards. Mapping of the new district 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.
