Local Government Boundary Review

A new pattern of wards is being developed for Fareham Borough Council.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England is an independent body accountable to Parliament. It recommends fair electoral and boundary arrangements for local authorities in England. In doing so, it aims to:

The Local Government Boundary Commission wants to hear what residents and local organisations think about the proposals. A 10-week consultation on the proposals will run until 15 November 2022.

The Commission has published proposals for changes to Fareham. It is proposing that there should be 32 councillors. Those councillors should represent 16 two-councillor wards. None of the existing wards will remain the same, all will have different boundaries.

Proposed changes include:

The Commission has a dedicated section on its website where people can see the detail of the proposals and comment on the names of wards and their boundaries External Hyperlink.

People can also give their views by e-mail at External Hyperlink and by post:
Review Officer (Fareham), LGBCE, PO Box 133, Blyth, NE24 9FE

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.

This consultation relates to the arrangements for local government elections. It is separate from consultations that are currently taking place across England on arrangements for parliamentary elections.
