New arrangements apply to elections after this date.

Dates: 25 May 2022 - 18 Jul 2022

Previous stages

Our recommendations for new electoral and boundary arrangements.

Dates: 1 Feb 2022 - 1 Feb 2022

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 Charnwood because it has been a long time since the last review, the number of electors per councillor varies a lot across the council and the Council has asked us to carry out a review. 

Latest Information

Effective date

The Charnwood (Electoral Changes) Order 2022 was made on 18 July 2022. 

Officers within the council will now make sure the new arrangements are in place for elections held in May 2023.

Final report
