Final recommendations published for Copeland

The Commission has published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for Copeland Borough Council.

We are proposing that Copeland Borough Council should be represented by 33 councillors in future. Our recommendations mean that those councillors should represent 17 wards, representing seven one-councillor wards, four two-councillor wards and six three-councillor wards across the borough.

The Commission has now completed its review. We are extremely grateful to the people of Copeland 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).

You can also read the final recommendations report and find links to other useful information in the box at the bottom of this page.
