Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council (HBBC) are reviewing parish and town council electoral arrangements in the borough – and they want to hear people’s views.

Their Community Governance Review will look at how local communities in the area are governed, to ensure that the arrangements are both ‘appropriate and relevant’, according to a Borough Council spokesperson in a statement issued to the Free Press.

A total of ten years have passed since their last Governance Review was held.

The review will consider the following:

  • Creating, merging, altering or abolishing parishes
  • The naming of parishes and the style of new parishes
  • Grouping parishes under a common parish council
  • The electoral arrangements for parishes – the ordinary year of election, council size, the number of councillors to be elected to the council, and parish warding

The deadline for initial consultation is Wednesday, 18 May.

The terms of reference and maps showing the current boundaries can either be viewed online, or in-person inside of the Hinckley Hub, based on Hawley Road.
