Review Body

The Commission carried out an electoral review of Ashfield between April 2013 - February 2015. The aim of the review was to deliver electoral equality for voters in local elections and recommend ward boundaries that means each councillor represented approximately the same number of electors.


Our review aimed to ensure that each Ashfield councillor represented roughly the same number of voters and that ward boundaries reflected the interests and identities of local communities.
