Final recommendations published for Cherwell

The Commission has published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for Cherwell District Council. We are proposing that Cherwell should be represented by 48 councillors in future: two fewer than the current arrangements. Our recommendations mean that those 48 councillors should represent sixteen three-member wards across the district. The Commission has now completed its review. We are extremely grateful to the people of Cherwell 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 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.
