Have your say on our new ward boundaries

The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) is carrying out a review of the ward boundaries for The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the number of elected members who sit on the Borough Council.

In September, the Commission stated that is it was minded to recommend that 43 borough councillors are elected to the council from the date of the next local elections in May 2019. From September to December 2017, they invited proposals from the council, interested parties and members of the public on a pattern of wards to accommodate the new number of councillors we will have from May 2019. 

On Tuesday 6 March 2018, the LGBCE published their draft recommendations on the Borough's new ward boundaries. They have drawn a pattern of wards to accommodate 42 elected members and are proposing 19 wards across the Borough. The LGBCE invited comments on their draft recommendations between Tuesday 6 March and Monday 7 May 2018. The consultation period is now closed.

To view the LGBCE's draft recommendations and to learn more about the review, visit their website:

The LGBCE will now be considering the comments they received from the consultation and are due to publish their final recommendations on Tuesday 10 July 2018.
