Notice of Community Governance Review
Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007
Local Government (Parish and Parish Councils) (England) Regulations 2008
Wyre Forest District Council has commenced a Community Governance Review in response to a request from Stourport-on-Severn Town Council. A community governance review can examine various issues relating to the governance of an area, and which are wider than electoral arrangements. Wyre Forest District Council will consider all representations received in reaching conclusions about what to do following consultation.
In May 2015 the allocation of seats for Stourport-on-Severn Town Council wards was changed as a result of the work done in 2014 by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England on the electoral review of Wyre Forest District Council. The Town Council perceives there to be anomalies in the current distribution of seats and would wish for this to be reviewed.
Wyre Forest District Council is now undertaking Stage One of the Review and is inviting Stourport-on-Severn Town Council, local electors and any interested organisations, to submit their views on the existing arrangements, together with any proposals for change. The Terms of Reference have been published and include some possible alternative patterns of representation for some of the Wards for consideration.
The Terms of Reference can be viewed at Wyre Forest District Council’s offices, Wyre Forest House, Finepoint Way, Kidderminster DY11 7WF or at Stourport-on-Severn Town Council’s Office or Stourport-on-Severn Library, Civic Centre, New Street, Stourport-on-Severn, DY13 8UN. A copy is also available on the District Council’s website at Community Governance review: Stourport-on-Severn.
