Electoral boundary review of Tewkesbury
The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England (the Commission) has consulted on proposals for new council ward boundaries for Tewkesbury borough. The public consultation period was from 4 July 2017 until 3 September 2017.
The Commission's draft recommendations proposed that Tewkesbury should have 38 councillors in the future, the same as the current arrangements. The recommendations also outlined how those councillors should represent three three-councillor wards, twelve two-councillor wards and five one-councillor wards across the borough.
The Commission's electoral review was carried out to ensure that the:-
Wards in Tewkesbury are in the best possible places to help the Council carry out its responsibilities effectively.
Number of voters represented by each councillor is approximately the same across the borough.
In December 2016, the number of councillors for Tewkesbury was decided by the Commission.
The Council then submitted its views on warding patterns for the borough during the consultation period 10 January 2017 - 20 March 2017.
The Commission published its final recommendations on 31 October 2017.
