The role of the Local Government Boundary Commission for England

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) is an independent body responsible for conducting reviews of local authority wards.  The LGBCE has begun a statutory review of the wards in Nuneaton and Bedworth to make sure councillors represent about the same number of voters and that the pattern of wards in our Borough reflect the interests and identities of our local communities, as well as promote effective local government. One of the most important parts of the electoral review process is to propose a new pattern of wards or electoral divisions for the whole local authority area and the Commission is asking for your views on these proposals.

What is an electoral review?

An electoral review is an examination of a council’s electoral arrangements. This means the:

  • total number of councillors elected to the local authority
  • number and boundaries of wards or divisions for the purposes of the election of councillors
  • number of councillors for any ward or division of a local authority
  • name of any ward or division

The review process takes around a year to complete and involves two rounds of consultation. The first round is open now and you can have your say.

What happens next?

Following the first round of consultation, the Commission will use all the evidence collected to draw up draft recommendations for new electoral arrangements (new wards, ward boundaries and ward names).  The draft recommendations will then be the subject of a second consultation in early 2023.
