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 Southend-on-Sea (Electoral Changes) Order 2000 was made on 5 June 2000.
The new arrangements came into effect at the May 2001 elections.
Our recommendations for new electoral and boundary arrangements were published on 2 November 1999.
Most recent and previous reviews are held on the UK Government Web Archive.
