Community Governance Review - final recommendations

06/07/2022 - Community Governance Review of Towns and Parishes in the Waverley Borough Council Area Final Recommendations



That the Executive recommends to Full Council that:


(a)   the final recommendations as set out in annexe 1 are approved; and


(b)  consent is sought from the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) to:


                     i.        amend the boundaries in their final recommendations for new Borough wards to ensure the boundaries are coterminous; and

                    ii.        change the Town Council size and warding arrangements for Farnham, Godalming and Haslemere.


Reason: The final recommendations have been formulated with consideration to key data for each parish and parish ward. This includes electorate projections and housing development data, submissions received at both stages of consultation, the parish/town council size, whether there is agreement between affected parishes and positive and/or negative effects on the electorate.


[This matter is recommended to Council for decision and is not subject to the call-in procedure.]
