Parish Reviews

In the Department of the Environment Circular 121/177, the Secretary of State envisaged that the Commission would complete its initial parish review programme over a six-year period up to 1984. It was expected that the programme would be staged: progress would be dependent on the flow of reports, the complexity of individual cases, the extent to which authorities keep to the guidelines, and the need for modifications or for the Commission to carry out its own reviews.  The procedures and programmes were set out in Report No. 286 Parish Boundary Reviews: Procedures and Programmes.

The Commission required evidence of thorough testing of local opinion and a balanced assessment of the outcome, without imposing rigid requirements as to the means by which the wishes of the people were to be established. Where appropriate, it undertook its own reviews.
