EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order makes changes to electoral arrangements for the district of Woking, which is a non-metropolitan district with borough status, following recommendations made by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England. The area of the district remains unchanged. The electoral changes apply in respect of local government elections to be held on and after the ordinary day of election of councillors in 2016.

Article 3 abolishes the existing wards of the district of Woking and replaces them with ten new ones. That article, the map (as defined in article 2) and the Schedule also establish the names, areas and number of councillors of the new district wards.

Article 4 makes provision for a whole district council election in 2016. (Thereafter, the council will revert to the existing system of election by thirds.) That article also provides for the order of retirement of councillors at elections to be held in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

The map defined in article 2 shows the new district wards. It is available at http://www.lgbce.org.uk/current-reviews/south-east/surrey/woking-fer. The map is also available for inspection at all reasonable times at the offices of Woking Borough Council, Civic Offices, Gloucester Square, Woking, Surrey GU21 6YL and at the offices of the Local Government Boundary Commission for England at 14 th floor, Millbank Tower, London SW1P 4QP.

An impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sectors is foreseen.
