Electoral Review of Hartlepool: draft recommendations

Published Wednesday, 3rd October 2018

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England has opened a public consultation on its draft recommendations for new electoral arrangements for Hartlepool Borough Council.

The consultation closes on 10 December 2018.

The draft recommendations propose that 36 borough councillors should be elected to Hartlepool Borough Council in future. The recommendations also propose new electoral ward boundaries across the borough.

Once the Commission has considered all the responses to the consultation, they aim to publish final recommendations in February 2019. They will then lay a draft order in both Houses of Parliament and – subject to parliamentary scrutiny – the new electoral arrangements are scheduled to come into effect at the borough elections in 2020.

All information relating to the draft recommendations is available on the Commission’s website. The report on its draft recommendations can also be found at: www.lgbce.org.uk.

Interactive maps of the proposals are also posted on the Commission’s consultation portal at: https://consultation.lgbce.org.uk. The portal also allows visitors to submit comments and alternative proposals.
