Electoral Review: Information Zone

The Commission is planning to carry out an electoral review of Shropshire Council.  

Our independent electoral reviews recommend new patterns of wards so that each councillor represents about the same number of electors. We also aim to ensure that the pattern of wards reflect community ties and identities and promotes effective local government.  

We begin by considering how many councillors a local council should have. We then draw up new wards for the council.      

Reviews involve several consultations where we ask local people and organisations to get involved. We actively encourage this because we believe local input helps us deliver the best electoral arrangements.   

The provisional date of the initial consultation is shown on the right. Other dates will be confirmed when the initial consultation starts.  

Information on how reviews work is available on our How Reviews Work Page.
