Electoral Review of Cheshire West and Chester
The Local Government Boundary Review for England is responsible for conducting reviews of local authority electoral arrangements and its ward boundaries.
The Local Government Boundary Review formally advised that an electoral review of Cheshire West and Chester would commence. Following various stages on consultation, the commission has now completed its review.
The Commission’s final recommendations propose that Cheshire West and Chester should be represented by 70 councillors in the future: five fewer than the current arrangement.
The recommendations also propose that those councillors in Cheshire West and Chester should represent
- six three-councillor wards,
- thirteen two-councillor wards
- 26 one-councillor wards
