The Local Government Boundary Commission is the independent body that draws these boundaries. It has reviewed Castle Point 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 final recommendations for changes in Castle Point. It says residents should be represented by 39 councillors. This is two fewer than the current arrangements.

There will be 13 wards, one fewer than there are now. These wards will be represented by three councillors each. The boundaries of all wards should change.

Publishing the recommendations Professor Colin Mellors, Chair of the Commission, said:

“We are very grateful to people in Castle Point. We looked at all the views they gave us. They helped us improve our earlier proposals.

“We believe the new arrangements will deliver electoral fairness while maintaining local ties.”

66 people and organisations made comments to help decide the new wards.

Changes in response to what local people said include:

  • Amended names for wards in Thundersley and Hadleigh which better reflect which area each ward covers
  • All wards electing three councillors

The Commission has made further changes to its earlier proposals. Details can be found on its website at /all-reviews/castle-point. 

The changes become law once Parliament has approved them. Staff at the council will ensure that the arrangements are in place for the 2024 elections.



Notes to editors:

This consultation relates to arrangements for local government elections. It is separate from the review of parliamentary constituencies that is currently taking place.

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
