Local Government (Democracy) (Wales) Act 2013

Section 38 – Implementation of community boundary change

52.This section provides that when the Commission receives a report of a community boundary review from a principal council, it may make an order implementing the recommendations as they stand, or with modifications agreed with the principal council. No consequential changes to electoral arrangements of the principal area may be made without the consent of the Welsh Ministers. If, however, the Commission and the principal council cannot agree on any proposed modifications, or if the Commission considers that it should not implement any of the council’s recommendations, it may conduct its own review.

53.Following that review, the Commission must publish its recommendations and submit them to the Welsh Ministers.
