Final recommendations published for Hartlepool Borough Council

The Commission has published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for Hartlepool Borough Council. We are proposing that Hartlepool should be represented by 36 councillors in future. Our recommendations mean that those councillors should represent 12 three-councillor wards across the borough. The Commission has now completed its review. We are extremely grateful to the people of Hartlepool 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).
