Political map of Camden set to change

The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is asking local people for their help to draw up a new pattern of council wards for Camden Council.

The consultation is the first part of an electoral review, which will re-draw ward boundaries across the borough.

The Commission has also announced that Camden should have 54 councillors in future: no change from the current arrangements.

The review of Camden is part of a three-year programme of work by the Commission that will see changes to ward boundaries in 25 London boroughs.

In drawing up new boundaries, the Commission aims to deliver electoral equality for voters in council elections so that each councillor represents roughly the same number of voters. The review also aims to ensure that the new council wards reflect, as far as possible, the interests and identities of communities across Camden.

Local people have until 4 March 2019 to submit their views in this consultation. Further information on the review and interactive maps of the existing wards can be found at consultation.lgbce.org.uk and lgbce.org.uk.
