Overview

West Northamptonshire Council is currently undergoing an electoral review that is run by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England. They are developing a new pattern of wards for West Northamptonshire Council.

The Commission is the independent body that draws these boundaries. It is

The Commission wants to hear what residents and organisations think about their local area. A 10-week consultation inviting proposals will run until 7 November 2022.

The  review consultation process for West Northamptonshire Council is as follows;

  • First consultation on warding arrangements: 30 August 2022 – 7 November 2022
