Background

New Warding Arrangements coming in May 2022

Following the outcome of the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) statutory review, the new electoral arrangements for Barnet Council will come into effect at the Local Government elections on 5 May 2022.

Barnet will continue to have 63 councillors but the number of wards is increasing from 21 to 24. There will be 15 three-councillor and 9 two-councillor wards.

These changes to the warding arrangements in Barnet mean that all polling districts and polling places have to be reviewed.

As part of this review, Barnet’s Returning Officer (RO) has drawn up proposals for new polling districts and polling places. You can read more information about the proposals here.

Any elector registered in the London Borough of Barnet may make a representation on the Returning Officer’s proposals and may suggest alternative venues and locations.

In addition to this, we would like to hear the views of anyone who is considered to have particular expertise in relation to access to premises or facilities for persons who have different forms of disability.

If you wish to make a representation you should send it by:

Representations must be received by no later than 5pm on Friday 19 November 2021.


What happens after the consultation closes?

Copies of all representations received will be submitted to the Council’s Constitution and General Purposes Committee and will also be published and available for viewing by the general public.

The Constitution and General Purposes Committee will review all representations received by the closing date and decide whether to accept and implement the Returning Officer’s proposals for polling arrangements at the meeting on 12 January 2022.
