The Boundaries Commission - review of ward boundaries.

The Boundaries Commission has started a consultation exercise to review the ward boundaries within the King's Lynn & West Norfolk Borough.


The aim of the electoral review is to recommend ward boundaries that mean each councillor represents approximately the same number of voters. We also aim to ensure that the pattern of wards reflects the interests and identities of local communities as well as promoting effective local government. In order to achieve these aims, we need to re-draw ward boundaries across King's Lynn and West Norfolk.

A letter from the Local Govenrment Boundary Commission addressed to the Chief Executive of the Borough Council advising the Council of the review of the warding arrangements may be seen here

The Consultation on 'Warding Arrangements' will take place as follows
  • Consultation on warding arrangements: 27 June - 4 September 2017
  • Consultation on draft recommendations: 31 October - 15 January 2018
  • Final recommendations published: 3 April 2018.

The first period of consultation for a pattern of wards for the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk began on 27 June 2017. Between 27 June 2017 and 4 September 2017, comments on the ward boundaries for the authority are invited.

The Commission has also announced that it is minded to recommend that the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk should have 54 councillors in the future; a reduction of eight.

The 2017 electoral roll for Priory ward listed 2070 electors. The reduction in the number of councillors will see the electoral roll increase to 2135 electors by 2023.

The Commission now needs information from people and groups across King's Lynn and West Norfolk to help it to produce a new pattern of wards to accommodate 54 councillors.

For more information, read a news release and the letter to the Chief Executive of the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk.
