Electoral review for Elmbridge 2016
Following the Council's request to the Local Government Boundary Commission for England to undertake an Electoral Review for Elmbridge, the Commission published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for Elmbridge Borough Council. The Commission's final recommendations are that Elmbridge be represented by 48 councillors: twelve fewer than the previous arrangement. Those councillors will represent sixteen three-member wards across the Borough, delivering electoral equality for voters across the Borough. The Commission's publication followed an eight-week public consultation on its draft proposals and draws new boundaries for each Council ward across Elmbridge. The new electoral arrangements were implemented at the local elections on 5 May 2016.
Further details in respect of the final recommendations can be seen on the Local Government Boundary Commission for England's website.
