Northumberland UA

Review Body

The Commission carried out an electoral review of Northumberland Unitary Authority between July 2008 - January 2011. 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 Northumberland councillor represented roughly the same number of voters and that ward boundaries reflected the interests and identities of local communities.


Information regarding past electoral reviews of the Northumberland County Council, prior to it becoming part of a unitary authority, which replaced the county and district councils on 1 April 2009, can be found here.
