The Local Government Boundary Commission has decided that the number of councillors in Epping Forest should be reduced to 54.
Watch the briefing
The Commission wants to hear what residents and organisations think about this and last week Rebecca Pritchard from the Local Government Boundary Commission gave a presentation to Epping Forest District councillors on the process and what happens next.
The briefing gave members of the public a chance to learn more about the Epping Forest electoral review and they had an opportunity to ask any questions. It was open to representatives of parish councils, community groups and members of the public.
Have your say
Now the Commission wants to hear what residents and organisations think about their local area and a 10-week consultation on the proposals has begun and will run until 18 July 2022.
The Commission is the independent body that draws these boundaries. It is reviewing Epping Forest to make sure councillors represent about the same number of electors, and that ward arrangements help the council work effectively. It wants to be sure that its proposals reflect community ties and identities.
The Commission has a dedicated section on its website where people can give their views:
