The Commission's electoral review of Redbridge was completed in April 2017. 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 Redbridge councillor represented roughly the same number of voters and that ward boundaries reflected the interests and identities of local communities.
