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.
