Have your say over council ward boundary changes

A new pattern of council wards is being developed for Liverpool.

The Local Government Boundary Commission is the independent organisation looking at Liverpool’s electoral arrangements. Their job is to make sure that the electoral and boundary arrangements for local authorities are fair.

They want the proposals for new electoral arrangements to reflect all of the communities within Liverpool, and for them to be easy to understand and convenient for local people.

Two online meetings are taking place for Liverpool residents. The meetings will start with an explanation about the review, so there is no need to know about current arrangements to take part. They will let people know how to get involved during the process. And there will be a chance to ask questions. You can join the meetings by using the links below.

There is no need to register in advance, but if you have any access needs, such as a sign-language interpreter, it would help if you could let the organisers know in advance at reviews@lgbce.org.uk or by calling 0330 500 1525.
If you can’t attend, the meetings will be available to view after they have taken place.

There will be further chances to get involved with the boundary review.

The Boundary Commission team will use local input to help draw up proposals for new wards and in some cases new ward names.

Local people and groups will be asked to give their views on the proposals before making firm recommendations.

The changes will come into effect for council elections in 2023.
