Final recommendations published for Merton Borough Council.

The Commission has published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for Merton.

We are proposing that Merton should be represented by 57 councillors in future. Our recommendations mean that those councillors should represent three two-councillor wards and 17 three-councillor wards across the borough.

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