Community Governance Review

We have launched a public consultation as part of a community governance review, which provides councils with the opportunity to review and make changes to community governance in their areas, usually where there have been changes to the local population.

The review will consider a number of issues, including whether to:

  • Create a new parish
  • Alter the boundary of an existing parish
  • Group a number of parishes together in a grouped parish council

This review will look at current parish boundaries and address whether they need to be changed, or new ones created, to reflect the changing landscape and population of Charnwood both now and in the future.

The consultation is open until April 30, 2017. To view maps of the current boundaries, please visit our maps page.

To have a say, visit the Charnwood Community Governance Online Survey. This survey is also available as a PDF below.

Alternatively, email your name, address and views to or call the communications team for a paper copy of the consultation form on 01509 634705.

All submissions received will be carefully reviewed, and draft proposals for any changes will be published for a further period of consultation between July and September 2017. Final recommendations for any changes will be approved in January 2018, and will come into effect for the local council elections in May 2019.
