Final recommendations published for New Forest District Council

The Commission has published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for New Forest District Council.

We are proposing that New Forest District Council should be represented by 48 councillors in future. Our recommendations mean that those councillors should represent two three-councillor wards, 18 two-councillor wards, and six single-councillor wards across the district.

The Commission has now completed its review. We are extremely grateful to the people of New Forest who took the time and effort to send us their views. The Commission considered every piece of evidence it received before finalising these recommendations.

In the map below, you can explore our final recommendations (in red) and see how they have changed from the current arrangements (in blue) and the changes we have made as a result of our consultation on our draft recommendations (in black).
