Still time to have a say on electoral arrangements

  • Charnwood Logo

People are being reminded they can have a say in a review of parish electoral arrangements in Charnwood.

Charnwood Borough Council is seeking people’s views as part of a community governance review which will look at existing arrangements and boundaries for towns and parishes, including the numbers of councillors.

The review could also potentially consider setting up new councils, from scratch or by grouping existing parish councils, or abolishing current councils if there are strong reasons to do so.

The consultation started on February 1 and runs until April 30, 2017.

A spokesman for the borough council said “The review will give residents, existing parish and town councils, community groups and any other relevant organisations a chance to comment on how they think arrangements in their areas can be improved.

Community governance reviews are carried out every 10 to 15 years to ensure arrangements remain reflective of local communities, and to take account of any changes, for example from new housing developments which result in increases in population.

Further information about the review and how to submit comments and suggestions can be found at www.charnwood.gov.uk/pages/cgr.

Alternatively, for a paper copy of the consultation form, please contact the Communications Team on 01509 634705.
