Who we are

We are an independent body accountable to Parliament. We review the electoral and boundary arrangements of councils.

We consult local people and organisations to help us produce proposals and then recommendations for change.

Our main focus is a rolling programme of electoral reviews. We review councils to make sure their patterns of internal wards or electoral divisions are fair and sensible.

If new councils are set up we carry out an electoral review.

If councils ask, we may review their external boundaries.

Sometimes we need to approve changes after locally-led reviews of parish and town councils.
