Fourth Statutory Reviews of Electoral Arrangements

All review reports | Wards 1995-99 | Wards 1999-2007: Third reviews | Wards 2007 onwards: Fourth reviews

This page contains links to the outputs from our Fourth Statutory Reviews of Electoral Arrangements which took place between 2004 and 2006 as required by the Local Governance (Scotland) Act 2004. Those Reviews resulted in the introduction in 2007 of a total of 353 multi-member wards for Scottish local authorities, returning a total of 1,222 councillors. The total number of councillors increased to 1,223 in May 2012 following our Interim Review of West Lothian council area. A spreadsheet listing all the wards is available from here.

This page contains links for each local authority area to:

  • our report which includes maps of each recommended ward;
  • a note of any modifications made by Scottish Ministers to the recommendations in the report;
  • a page giving access to more detailed maps of the individual wards as implemented by Scottish Ministers, and;
  • the Statutory Instrument (or Order) which brought the new wards into being.
