Chance to have your say on Borough Council Ward arrangements
Published on: 6 February, 2023
The Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) has launched a consultation on the electoral wards within Wokingham Borough and is calling on residents to give their views.
The LGBCE is proposing that there should be 18 wards in the borough, seven fewer than there are now. These 18 wards will each be represented by three councillors.
The Local Government Boundary Commission for England is an independent body accountable to Parliament. It recommends fair electoral and boundary arrangements for local authorities in England. In doing so, it aims to:
Make sure that, within an authority, each councillor represents a similar number of electors
Reflect the electoral cycle so that each ward is represented by three councillors
Create boundaries that are appropriate, and reflect community ties and identities
Deliver reviews informed by local needs, views and circumstances.
Have your say
Full details of the proposals and the consultation can be found on the LGBCE website. People can also give their views by e-mail at email@example.com, and by post:

Wokingham Borough Council Chief Executive Susan Parsonage said: “It is important that ward arrangements take account of local views and reflect our community and so I would urge everybody to have a look at the proposals and then make their comments.”
The consultation will run until Monday 10 April, 2023.
