Barnet Electoral review - Local Government Boundary Commission England Consultation (Phase 2)

This consultation has closed.

Overview

The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) for England is asking people across Barnet to comment on its draft proposals for new council ward boundaries. The Commission’s plans would mean changes to all ward boundaries in Barnet.

Background

In September 2018, the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) launched the electoral review of the London Borough of Barnet.

During the first phase, the LGBCE asked local people and organisations to give their views where they believe ward boundaries should be in Barnet Council. The Commission has considered all the submissions it received which have informed their draft recommendations that are summarised here and below:

  • Barnet’s council size remains 63 councillors, as at present
  • Those councillors should represent 14 three-councillor wards, 10 two-councillor wards and 1 one-councillor ward, across the council area
  • Barnet should have 25 wards, four more than there are now.
  • The boundaries of all wards should change, none will stay the same.

The full recommendations and detailed interactive maps are available on the Commission’s website at consultation.lgbce.org.uk and www.lgbce.org.uk.
