Current Review of District Electoral Areas | District Electoral Area Commissioners for Northern Ireland

Current Review of District Electoral Areas

The current review of District Electoral Areas commenced on 21st January 2013, and is expected to be complete within one year.

The Commissioner will make recommendations for the grouping of local government wards in Northern Ireland within district council areas for the purposes of elections to local councils.

These recommendations will be issued for public consultation in the form of a provisional report. Following the consultation process and consideration of representations, a number of public inquiries may be held. Transcripts of these will be considered, and a final report and recommendations will be produced. The final report will be submitted to the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, who will lay the report before Parliament.
