Section 24 – Future review periods

50.Section 29(3) of the Local Government (Democracy) (Wales) Act 2013, requires the Commission to conduct a review of the electoral arrangements of each of the principal areas at least once every 10 years, starting from the day that section came into force (which was 30 September 2013, under section 75(2)(b) of that Act). Section 24 enables the Welsh Ministers to re-set the start of the Commission’s 10-year review period, so that it will run from a new date following the completion of local authority mergers.
