Electoral review

The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is asking people across Pendle Borough Council to comment on its draft proposals for new council ward boundaries.

A 10-week public consultation starts on 30 July and finishes on 7 October 2019. The consultation is open to anyone who wants to have their say on new council wards, ward boundaries and ward names across Pendle.

The Commission’s draft recommendations propose that Pendle should have 33 councillors in future: this is 16 fewer than present. The recommendations also outline how those councillors should represent 11 three-councillor wards across the borough.

The full recommendations and detailed interactive maps are available on the Commission’s website. Hard copies of the Commission’s report and maps will also be available to view at Council buildings.

The Commission wants to hear as much evidence as possible to develop final recommendations for Pendle. If you would like to make a submission to the Commission, please write or email us by 7 October 2019.
