The Commission is carrying out an electoral review of East Hampshire District Council.


The aim of the electoral review is to recommend ward boundaries that mean each councillor represents approximately the same number of voters. We also aim to ensure that the pattern of wards reflects the interests and identities of local communities as well as promoting effective local government. In order to achieve these aims, we need to re-draw ward boundaries across East Hampshire.



The consultation on warding arrangements for East Hampshire closed on 14 August 2017.

On 13 June 2017, we started the first period of consultation for a pattern of wards for East Hampshire District Council. Between 13 June 2017 and 14 August 2017, we are invited comments on the ward boundaries for the authority.

The Commission also announced that it was minded to recommend that East Hampshire District Council should have 44 councillors in the future.

The Commission needed information from people and groups across East Hampshire to help it to produce a new pattern of wards to accommodate 44 councillors.

For more information, read our news release and the letter to the Chief Executive of East Hampshire District Council.

You may find the electoral figures useful when thinking about warding arrangements.

Polling district maps may also be useful when thinking about warding arrangements. You can view the polling district map below. Please note, polling district mapping data has been supplied by East Hampshire District Council and may contain boundary errors.
