Local Government Boundaries Review

Provisional Recommendations of the Local Government Boundaries Review in Northern Ireland

The Local Government Boundaries Commissioner (LGBC) for Northern Ireland, Sarah Havlin, is seeking views on her Provisional Recommendations on the Local Government Boundaries Review.

The Commissioner’s Provisional Proposals report outlines the recommendations in respect of the number, boundaries and names of the 11 local government districts and the number, boundaries and names of the wards into which each district is divided. This process is undertaken in order to independently provide electoral equality in that all the wards within a district should, as far as possible, have a similar number of electors.  The review has used the latest mapping technology to increase accessibility and transparency around the recommended changes. 

A consultation is now underway, seeking views on the Commissioner’s recommended changes outlined in the Provisional Recommendations report. The Commissioner encourages citizens to participate in the consultation by confirming that they agree or disagree with the Provisional Recommendations for the 11 districts and by submitting any additional information for consideration by the Commissioner.
