Final recommendations published for Isle of Wight Council

Final recommendations published for Isle of Wight Council

The Commission has published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for Isle of Wight Council.

We are proposing that the Isle of Wight should be represented by 39 councillors in future. Our recommendations mean that those councillors should represent 39 one-councillor divisions across the council.

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