Electoral Boundary Review

Blaby Electoral Boundary Review

New boundaries are being proposed for council wards in Blaby District Council.

The Commission is the independent body that draws these boundaries. It is reviewing Blaby to make sure councillors will represent about the same number of electors, and that ward arrangements will help the council work effectively.

The Commission has published proposals for changes to Blaby. It is proposing that:

  • there should be 17 wards, one fewer than there are now.
  • the boundaries of 15 wards should change, while three will stay the same
  • there will be 3 three-councillor wards
  • 13 two-councillor wards and
  • 1 single-councillor ward across the district

Proposed changes include:

  • Two-councillor Enderby and Glen Parva wards and a three-councillor Narborough and Littlethorpe ward as these are based on whole parishes and secure good electoral equality while using strong boundaries
  • The creation of a three-councillor Leicester Forest & Lubbesthorpe ward. It has been necessary to create a three-member ward to absorb the large amount of development forecast for Lubbesthorpe parish which would otherwise result in a ward with very poor electoral equality

The Commission has a dedicated section on its website where people can see the detail of the proposals. Find the link below. 

Consultation closed on 11 April 2022. The Commission is due to publish their final recommendations on 5 July 2022.
