Community Governance Review

What is a community governance review?

A community governance review looks at the whole or part of an area to consider:

  • The creation, merger, alteration or abolition of parishes
  • The naming of parishes and the style of new parishes
  • The electoral arrangements for parishes, such as the ordinary year of election, council size, wards, and numbers of councillors
  • The grouping or de-grouping of parishes

The law allows us to use a review to assess and make changes to community governance within our area. The government's website has guidance about carrying out a community governance review.
