Local Boundary Review

The Local Government Boundary Commission (LGBC) for England is carrying out an electoral review of all local authorities that have not been reviewed in the last twelve years. This process includes Stockton-on-Tees, as the Council last took part in a review in 2003.

An electoral review proposes new electoral arrangements for a local authority. It will recommend:

  • The total number of councillors that should be elected to the authority in the future (‘council size’).
  • The boundaries, names and number of councillors to represent each ward.

The review process takes around a year and includes at least two phases of public consultation where proposals/comments on ward boundaries will be invited.
