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.
We are carrying out an electoral review of Walsall because it has been a long time since the last review.
|15 August 2023||We decide how many councillors there should be|
|22 August - 30 October 2023||We carry out an initial public consultation on communities|
|30 January - 8 April 2024||We carry out a public consultation on our proposals|
|2 July 2024||We publish our recommendations|
|Autumn/Winter 2024||We ask Parliament to approve our recommendations|
|May 2026||New arrangements apply to local elections|
Visit our 'How reviews work' pages for more information on the review process.
