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.
|July 2023||We decide how many councillors there should be|
|25 July - 2 October 2023||We carry out an initial public consultation on communities|
|9 January - 18 March 2024||We carry out a public consultation on our proposals|
|4 June 2024||We publish our recommendations|
|Summer 2024||We ask Parliament to approve our recommendations|
|May 2026||New arrangements apply to local elections|
