The Commission has now completed its review of Warwickshire. I am pleased to announce the publication of the Commission’s report setting out our final recommendations for Warwickshire County Council, which is published today. A full copy of the report and a summary is available on our website, http://www.lgbce.org.uk/current-reviews/west-midlands/warwickshire/warwickshire-county-council. An interactive map of final recommendations is available at https://consultation.lgbce.org.uk/node/3224
The changes proposed for Warwickshire County Council must now be implemented by order subject to Parliamentary scrutiny. A draft Order – the legal document which brings into force the recommendations – will be laid in Parliament. The draft Order will provide for new electoral arrangements for Warwickshire to be implemented at the local elections in 2017.
We would also like to invite you to participate in our online opinion survey. This survey seeks feedback on the review processes and procedures, in order to identify improvements that can be made. We would be grateful if you could spare some time to visit our website, at http://www.lgbce.org.uk/about-us/lgbce-opinion-survey to complete the survey.
If you require a paper copy of the opinion survey please contact Heather Fuller on 020 7664 8534.
