Dates: 12 Jan 2021 - 12 Jan 2021

We review the electoral and boundary arrangements of councils to make sure they are fair. Our reviews include at least two rounds of public consultation before we make recommendations for change. 

We have carried out an electoral review of Central Bedfordshire because the number of electors per councillor varies a lot across the council.

Effective date

The Central Bedfordshire (Electoral Changes) Order 2021 was made on 17 September 2021.
