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.
