Fifth Electoral Reviews
We have submitted our reports and final recommendations, for the number of councillors and the electoral ward boundaries in each of Scotland's 32 local authorities to Scottish Ministers. On 14 September 2016 Scottish Ministers made their decision on our recommendations. You can see further information on our Fifth Electoral Reviews section.
The Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland is responsible for:
- carrying out reviews of the boundaries of local authority areas;
- carrying out reviews of electoral wards for local authorities;
- responding to requests for reviews of electoral wards or local authority areas.
The Boundary Commission for Scotland is a separate body which is responsible for reviewing parliamentary constituencies in Scotland. Details of its work can be found at http://www.bcomm-scotland.independent.gov.uk.
