After a community governance review, principle authorities may wish to request related alterations to ward and division boundaries. The responsibility for making these alterations now falls to the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE). Guidance on community governance reviews and related alterations can be found here - community governance review guidance (PDF)
The LGBCE has an intensive programme of electoral reviews planned for the remainder of 2017, to which it must give priority. Accordingly, the level of resources the LGBCE will be able to devote to considering requests for and making related alteration Orders (the legal document which effects the changes) will be limited.
Unless requests for related alterations have been made to the LGBCE by 1 October, there can be no guarantee that any Order will be made in time for implementation in elections in May.
All requests for related alteration Orders should be sent to:Review and Programme Manager LGBCE 14th Floor, Millbank Tower Millbank London SW1P 4QP
