Newham Electoral Boundary Review

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England is the independent body currently reviewing ward boundaries within Newham.

Electoral Boundary Review

Local Government electoral reviews are conducted to look at whether the boundaries of wards or divisions within a local authority need to be altered in order to secure effective local government and electoral equality. Electoral equality is achieved when councillors represent roughly the same number of electors.
The Commission has agreed that Newham should have 66 councillors to represent the Borough in the future, an increase of 6 from the current council size. Residents are being encouraged to comment on draft proposals for new council ward boundaries within Newham.
The consultation period is from Tuesday 4 June 2019 to Monday 12 August 2019 and is open to anyone who wishes to have a say.
