Local Government Boundary Commission Review – Milton Keynes

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England have launched their initial consultation on new warding patterns for Milton Keynes City Council. The first part of the consultation will run until 9 September 2024. Details of the review can be found on the Milton Keynes City Council website and the Local Government Boundary Commission website.

The review is taking place to enable the increase in the number of Ward Councillors in Milton Keynes from 57 to 60 and adding an extra ward to make the number of wards in MK to 20.

There will be 2 opportunities for commenting on the review:

  • the current consultation that is due to end on 9 September 2024
  • after the draft proposals have been published towards the end of 2024

There are 3 criteria that drive the decision making:

  • electoral equality – a similar number of electorate are represented by the ward councillors
  • community identities and their interests – ensuring that communities that are connected to neighbouring areas maintain that connection, for example where communities go to shop, to school or attend places of worship
  • effective and convenient local government – ensuring that ward boundaries make sense and ward councillors are able to move easily between the communities they represent.

Final proposals will be published in Spring 2025 with the implentation of the review planned for 2026.

Coffee Morning – 10.30am – 12pm Friday 5 July 2024

Come along to the hall and chat, enjoy a coffee, a slice of cake and a catch up with your neighbours and other residents. If you would like to come along and live in the village but need a lift to the hall please call Kay on 07458 136826, and we can organise to collect you.
