Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act 2009

Section 57 – Requests for review of single-member electoral areas

132.This section provides a power for the Local Government Boundary Commission for England to conduct a review of the area of a principal council (as defined by section 52), at that council’s request, with a view to making recommendations as to whether each electoral area in the area of the principal council should return only one member. It re-enacts, with changes, sections 14A and 14B of the Local Government Act 1992, which were inserted by the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007. The main difference from those provisions is that the role of the Electoral Commission has been removed.
