The Boundary Commission for England carried out an electoral review of Shropshire, which finished in November 2008. 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.
The review aimed to ensure that each Hartlepool councillor represented roughly the same number of voters and that ward boundaries reflected the interests and identities of local communities.
On 11 February 2009 the Electoral Commission decided to accept the Boundary Commitee for England's recommendations for the new electoral arrangements for the county of Shropshire, with one modification:
- Part of the Castlefields and Ditherington electoral division boundary was extended to include six properties on Victoria Street which were previously contained in the Quarry and Cotton Hill electoral division.
