What a community governance review does
London Boroughs, district and unitary councils can decide whether to:
- Create new parishes or community councils
- Change the boundaries of existing parishes
- Group parishes together
Ward boundaries often follow parish boundaries, as do county electoral divisions. Once a community governance review is finished a council can request that we make changes to ward or division boundaries.
These changes are called related alterations. Proposals for such changes should be consulted on as part of a review and the recommendation made to the Commission.
How a community governance review comes about
- A London Borough, district or unitary council decides to carry out a community governance review
- Local people can formally petition their council to ask for a review
