In March 2008, Parliament authorised the creation of a new unitary authority called Cheshire East Council. The council replaced the authorities of Congleton Borough Council, Crewe and Nantwich Borough Council and Macclesfield Borough Council. The Order can be viewed via this link.
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.
The Borough of Macclesfield (Electoral Changes) Order 1998 was made on 13 November 1998.
The new arrangements came into effect at the May 1999 elections.
Our recommendations for new electoral and boundary arrangements were published on 31 March 1998.
Most recent and previous reviews are held on the UK Government Web Archive.
