Have your say - NEW Pattern of electoral wards in North Northamptonshire

The independent Local Government Boundary Commission England (the Commission) is asking for the help of residents and parishes in drawing up a new pattern of electoral wards in North Northamptonshire.

The Commission will be giving more information about the review and answering questions at an online briefing (via Zoom) on Wednesday 14th December at 6pm. Those wishing to attend must register their interest by replying to with a subject heading of LGBCE Community Briefing as soon as possible and by no later than 2pm on 13th December 2022.

Information about the review is also available on the Commission's website

In drawing up the new wards, the Commission aims to ensure that each councillor represents roughly the same number of voters. The review will also try to create wards that as far as possible reflect the interests and identities of communities across North Northamptonshire. As a new authority, the existing boundaries may not reflect the identity of communities, or provide for effective and convenient local government.

Your views about the boundaries are therefore important in ensuring effective governance for North Northamptonshire in future.

The Commission would like to hear opinions on:

• the number of wards

• the names of wards

• where the boundaries between wards should lie

• the number of councillors for each ward.

You can make an online submission on the Commission's website or send your views by email to or by post to:
