Review of Ward Boundaries

On 17 January 2012, the Local Government Boundary Commission for England started a review of Rushcliffe Borough Council.

The Council made a submission which considered that Rushcliffe should be served by 45 councillors: a reduction of 5 from the current arrangements.

The Commission asked local people and groups whether they thought this was the right number of councillors to serve the Borough.After this period of preliminary consultation an information gathering exercise started on 27 March 2012. The Commission published draft recommendations and a further period of consultation started. 

Final recommendations were published by the LGBCE on 19 February 2013. 

These final recommendations concluded that there should be 44 councillors across 25 Wards. The 44 councillors will represent 11 single-member wards, nine two-member wards and five three-member wards across the Borough. 

The detailed report can be viewed on the LGBCE website

 A report setting out the implications of the review was approved by Council on  20 June 2013.

Draft order laid in Parliament

The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) is asking local people for their help to draw up a new pattern of wards for Rushcliffe Borough Council.

On 18 July 2013 The Rushcliffe (Electoral Changes) Order 2013 was laid in draft in Parliament.

The draft order will be laid in Parliament for a period of 40 sitting days. Parliament can either accept or reject the LGBCE recommendations.

If accepted, the new electoral arrangements will come into force at the next scheduled elections for Rushcliffe in 2015.

The draft order can be viewed through the following link:
