The Local Government Boundary Commission for
England has undertaken a review of the council’s electoral
arrangements and made recommendations for new warding patterns, to
be used for the May 2023 Local Elections onwards.
A consequence of the borough’s new warding arrangements is that the existing boundaries of the council’s seven area committees are no longer coterminous with the new ward boundaries that will be in place for the 2023/24 municipal year and that the council must therefore establish new arrangements.
The Cabinet has considered proposed arrangements for the boundaries of Area Committee for the 2023/24 municipal year following a review of the warding arrangements for the borough undertaken by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England and has recommended that the Council Meeting give approval to the adoption of the arrangement for area committees, as identified in Section 3.5 of the report subject to an item being included within the Constitution Working’s Party’s work programme for 2023/24 to give further consideration to this matter, including scope for a possible radical realignment of area committee boundaries.
