Community Governance Review – Framfield Parish

Status: Closed

Following receipt of a request from Framfield Parish Council, the Council is consulting on a proposal to change electoral arrangements for the Parish of Framfield by way of a Community Governance Review.

The request from Framfield Parish Council is for Wealden District Council to consider reducing the number of Parish Councillors on Framfield Parish Council from 11 to 9.

Results reports:

Key findings and changes made:

Of the nine responses, 66% (6) agreed with reducing the number of Framfield Parish Councillors from 11 to 9.

Most of the reasons for agreement were given as 11 being too many for a small village and that the parish council has struggled to achieve 11 councillors in recent years.

What Happens Next?

If the outcome of the CGR affects District Ward and County Division boundaries, the District Council will consider and consult upon the consequential boundary changes and make recommendations to the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) to make alterations to those boundaries to reflect any changes made at parish level.

The electoral arrangements affecting Wealden parish boundaries were amended by The Wealden (Electoral Changes) Order 2016 (dated 15 December 2016), and as a full five years has passed since that Order was made, the consent of the Local Government Boundary Commission for England will not be required before any local Community Governance Reorganisation Order can be made.
