Community Governance Reviews

Government guidance suggests that it is good practice to conduct a Community Governance Review every 10-15 years. 

A Community Governance Review is a review of parishes and other arrangements by which communities can be represented and through which they can engage. 

The main aims of a review are to secure future arrangements that:

  • reflect the identities and interests of the communities in the area; and
  • are effective and convenient

The most recent community governance review took place in 2017.
