Section 65 – Electoral changes consequential on boundary change

143.This section makes amendments to sections 8, 10, 11 and 12 of the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007. This section amends the process set out in sections 8 and 10 for the review by the Boundary Committee for England of the boundaries of local government areas, to enable the new Local Government Boundary Commission for England to consider whether consequential changes (including changes to constituencies of the Greater London Assembly) should be made to electoral arrangements as part of the same review. This enables, but does not require, both boundary and electoral matters to be considered in a single review rather than two separate reviews. Section 65 also makes consequential changes to the powers to implement boundary changes in sections 11 and 12 of the 2007 Act.
