Local Government Boundaries Commissioner for Northern Ireland





Local Government Boundaries Commissioner for Northern Ireland Sarah Havlin has published her Revised Recommendations on 18 January 2022.

The Commissioner’s task is to review and make recommendations in respect of the number, boundaries and names of the 11 local government districts in Northern Ireland and the number, boundaries and names of the wards into which each district is divided, in line with the Local Government Act (Northern Ireland) 1972 (as amended).

The Commissioner published her Provisional Recommendations on 27 July 2021 for an 8 week consultation period.

A series of public hearings were held during September and October, one for each District.

The Commissioner has subsequently formulated Revised Recommendations taking into consideration representations received from councils, political parties, associations, organisations and individual members of the public, and in line with the statutory rules of her Review.

The closing date for responses is 1st March 2022.
