The consultation on our warding arrangements for Richmondshire District Council has now closed.
On 27 June 2017, we started the first period of consultation for a pattern of wards for Richmondshire District Council. Between 27 June 2017 and 4 September 2017, we invited comments on the ward boundaries for the authority.
The Commission has also announced that it is minded to recommend that Richmondshire District Council should have 24 councillors in the future; a reduction of ten.
The Commission needed information from people and groups across Richmondshire to help it to produce a new pattern of wards to accommodate 24 councillors.
For more information, read our news release and the letter to the Chief Executive of Richmondshire District Council.
