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 Worcestershire because it has been a long time since the last review and the number of electors per councillor varies a lot across the council.

|• 9 January - 18 March 2024||We carry out a public consultation on our proposals|
|• 2 July 2024||We publish our recommendations|

We ask local people and organisations to tell us about their communities.
The first stage of this electoral review is to determine the number of councillors who should represent the local authority in the future.
