Final recommendations published for Bath and North East Somerset

The Commission has published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for Bath and North East Somerset Council.

We are proposing that Bath and North East Somerset Council should be represented by 59 councillors in future. Our recommendations mean that those councillors should represent 26 two-councillor wards and 7 one-councillor wards across the council area.

The Commission has now completed its review. We are extremely grateful to the people of Bath and North East Somerset 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).
