On 5th February 2019, The Local Government Boundary Commission published a draft recommendations of revised ward boundaries and now want the input from residents. The last review occurred in preparation for the 2010 elections and the current ward review will probably come into effect for the 2022 local elections.
The Commission’s recommendations propose an increase in the number of councillors from 69 to 70 whilst increasing the number of wards from 23 to 24. Readers may be trying to calculate how this might work. They are suggesting that 22 wards will be 3-councillor wards, with the remaining two to become 2-councillor wards.
The summary of draft recommendations report can be found here.

The Commission are keen to hear from residents from Northcote Avenue, Florence Road and Harriers Close. If you live in one of these roads, how do you feel? Do you feel more ‘Ealing Common’ or more ‘Ealing Broadway’? Have you say!
The Commission is now running a 10-week consultation on these recommendations ending on 15th April 2019.
