Local Government Boundary Review

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) is an independent body responsible for conducting reviews of local authority wards.  The LGBC has begun a statutory review of the wards in Fareham to make sure councillors represent about the same number of voters and that the pattern of wards in our Borough reflect the interests and identities of our local communities, as well as promote effective local government.

The review proposes new electoral arrangements for a local authority.  It will recommend:

The review process takes around a year to complete and includes at least two phases of public consultation where proposals/comments on ward boundaries will be invited.

The first consultation was launched on 25 January 2022 and will run until 11 July 2022.  You can take part by following this link: Fareham Ward Boundary Review Consultation.

Following the first consultation, the Commission will use all the evidence collected to draw up draft recommendations for new electoral arrangements (new wards, ward boundaries and ward names).  It will publish the draft recommendations which will be the subject of a second consultation.

After considering all submissions on its draft recommendations, the Commission will finalise its proposals and publish its final recommendations.

After the publication of final recommendations, the Commission will then turn them into law through the parliamentary process.  It will draft an order which seeks to implement the recommendations through a Statutory Instrument.  A draft order will be laid in both Houses of Parliament under the negative resolution procedure. Subject to the Parliamentary process, the Commission will make the order at the conclusion of the resolution procedure and it will be law.
