Community Governance Review


A community governance review provides an opportunity for the Council to review and make changes to community governance within its area. Such reviews can be undertaken in response to demographic changes such as a rise in population as a result of significant new housing development or can be prompted through the presentation of a petition to the Council.

Who undertakes a Community Governance Review?

As the principal authority, Cheshire West and Chester Council is responsible for undertaking any community governance review within its electoral area. Formal decisions as to the Terms of Reference for the Review and the recommendations arising from the Review will be made by Full Council.
