- Draft legislation
This is a draft item of legislation. This draft has since been made as a Northern Ireland Statutory Rule: Local Government (Boundaries) Order (Northern Ireland) 2012 No. 421
(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order gives effect with modifications to the recommendations made under the Local Government Act (Northern Ireland) 1972 by the Local Government Boundaries Commissioner in relation to the boundaries and names of the districts into which Northern Ireland is to be divided for the purposes of local government and the number, boundaries and names of the wards into which each of those districts is to be divided.
The modifications to the Local Government Boundaries Commissioner’s recommendations are outlined in the Statement of Reasons for the Modifications of the Recommendations of the Local Government Boundaries Commissioner prepared under section 50(9) of the Local Government Act (Northern Ireland) 1972.
The boundaries of the local government districts and their wards are as shown on the maps deposited with the Department of the Environment at Goodwood House, 44-58 May Street, Belfast, BT1 4NN (Articles 2 and 3).
Copies of these maps are deposited with the Chief Survey Officer of Land and Property Services, an executive Agency within the Department of Finance and Personnel, and a copy of the volume or volumes of maps relating to a local government district is deposited at the district council office. The copies are available for inspection at all reasonable times by any person.
This Order replaces the Local Government (Boundaries) Order (Northern Ireland) 1992 which is revoked by Article 4.
