Final recommendations published for Manchester

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

We are proposing that Manchester should be represented by 96 city councillors in future; the same as the current arrangement. Our final recommendations propose that Manchester’s 96 councillors should represent 32 three-councillor wards across the city.

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