Final recommendations published for South Lakeland

Final recommendations published for South Lakeland

The Commission has published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for South Lakeland District Council.

We are proposing that South Lakeland should be represented by 51 district councillors in future: the same as the current arrangements. Our recommendations mean that those councillors should represent three two-member wards and fifteen three-member wards across the district.

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