The Local Democracy and Boundary Commission for Wales are about to conduct a review of the Seaward Boundaries of the City and County of Swansea and the County Borough of Neath Port Talbot.


Today we have published our Seaward Boundary Reviews: Policy and Practice document, created in anticipation of new energy projects in Welsh territorial waters which necessitates the changing of seaward boundaries to bring them into principal council areas.


Today we have published our updated Electoral Reviews: Policy and Practice document for the programme to review all 22 principal council areas in good time for the 2022 local government elections.


The Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Local Government has asked the Commission to produce a new programme of electoral reviews to be completed within the next local government term.


The Local Democracy and Boundary Commission for Wales have published the Final Proposals for their Review of Neath Port Talbot Community Arrangements.


The Public Services Minister has decided not to make Orders to implement the outstanding electoral reviews in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Conwy, Denbighshire, Gwynedd, Monmouthshire, Pembrokeshire, Powys and Torfaen prior to the 2017 local elections.
