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

The Commission has published proposals for changes to Newcastle City Council. It is proposing that there should be 78 Councillors representing 26 three-councillor wards. 23 wards will change, three will stay the same.

Proposed changes include:

  • The Kingston park area is included in a single ward 

  • There will be one ward in Jesmond. It does not extend south of the A1058


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

“We want people in Newcastle to help us. 

We have drawn up proposals for new wards in Newcastle. 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 can help us do that. 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 Commission has a dedicated section on its website where people can see the detail of the proposals and comment on the names of wards and their boundaries: https://www.lgbce.org.uk/all-reviews/newcastle-upon-tyne

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
