image map Final recommendations

The Commission carried out an electoral review of Warwick District Council between February 2012 - January 2014. 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.


Our review aimed to ensure that each Warwick District councillor represented roughly the same number of voters and that ward boundaries reflected the interests and identities of local communities.

Recommendations become law

The Warwick (Electoral Changes) Order 2014, to implement recommendations made by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) for new boundaries in Warwick, was made on 8 January 2014 and was published on 14 January 2014.

New ward arrangements for Warwick have now successfully completed a 40 day period of Parliamentary scrutiny and will come into force at the local elections in 2015.

The order for Warwick can be viewed through the following link:
