Local Government Boundary Commission Review

Today is the start of a 10-week public consultation inviting proposals for new council wards and ward boundaries for Mid Sussex District Council.

Our consultation will close on 31 May 2021.

After we have considered all representations made to us during this consultation, we intend to publish draft recommendations on 31 August 2021.

We will then hold a further period of consultation on our draft recommendations. Our final recommendations are expected to be published 02 February 2022.

The new electoral arrangements will come into effect at the local elections in May 2023.

The Commission is carrying out an electoral review of Mid Sussex District Council.

The aim of the electoral review is to recommend ward boundaries that mean each councillor represents approximately the same number of voters.

We also aim to ensure that the ward boundaries reflect the interests and identities of local communities, as well as promoting effective local government.

To achieve these aims, we need to re-draw ward boundaries across Mid Sussex. You can find out more about the review below.
