Community Governance Review

We have launched a second phase of consultation as part of a community governance review in Charnwood. 

The process provides the council with the opportunity to review and make changes to community governance in the area and it happens usually where there have been changes to the local population.

Following an initial consultation which received 35 responses, the Council has drawn up 13 proposals and we are now inviting people to comment on them. The deadline for responses is October 6.

To have a say, please visit our online survey. If you require a paper copy of the survey, please email communications@charnwood.gov.uk or call 01509 634705.

Read more about the community governance review proposals. For more indepth information, read the community governance report which went to Council on June 26.

For any issues regarding the community governance review, please email cgr@charnwood.gov.uk. 


What is a community governance review?

A community governance review 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.

A public consultation was held between February 1 and April 30, 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.
