Final chance to have your say on a new political map for Bradford Council

The Local Government Boundary Commission is undertaking further consultation on new boundaries for 10 council wards in the city.

The Commission is not seeking submissions about the rest of the cityA full set of final recommendations for the council will be published in October 2024.  

The Local Government Boundary Commission wants to hear what residents and local organisations think about the new proposals. A final 6-week consultation on the proposals will run until 19 August 2024. This follows two previous periods of consultation.

The Commission is the independent body that draws these boundaries. It is reviewing Bradford to make sure councillors will represent about the same number of electors, reflect community identity, and that ward arrangements will help the council work effectively. 

Our proposed further draft recommendations include:


  • Four revised wards in the Baildon, Bingley and Shipley area, where we proposed to include Eldwick in a Bingley ward as opposed to a Baildon & Eldwick ward, as per our draft recommendations

  • Six revised wards in the south of the city where we propose to recognise the M606 as a strong boundary between the areas of Wyke and Bierley

Launching the consultation Professor Colin Mellors, Chair of the Commission, said:

“We are publishing further recommendations for a new pattern of wards across Bradford, and we are keen to hear what local people think of the recommendations. We want people in Bradford to help us. 


We have drawn up final proposals for new wards in Bradford. We want to make sure these new electoral arrangements reflect communities. We also want them to be easy to understand and convenient for local people.


Residents and local organisations have already helped us in refining our earlier proposals. Now we would like them to let us know whether they agree with our proposals before we take final decisions.


It’s easy to get involved. Go to our website. Or you can e-mail or write to us.


Just tell us what you think and give us some details why you think that. It’s really simple, so do get involved”

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England is an independent body accountable to Parliament. It recommends fair electoral and boundary arrangements for local authorities in England. In doing so, it aims to 


  • Make sure that, within an authority, each councillor represents a similar number of electors

  • Reflect the electoral cycle so that each ward is represented by three councillors 

  • Create boundaries that are appropriate, and reflect community ties and identities

  • Deliver reviews informed by local needs, views and circumstances
