Local Government Boundary Commission logoElectoral Review of Kensington and Chelsea 


On 19 March 2013 the Local Government Boundary Commission for England published its proposals for new electoral wards to come into effect in the Royal Borough from May 2014.

The Commission proposes the retention of 18 wards, 14 represented by 3 Councillors and 4 represented by 2 Councillors (giving a total of 50 Councillors, a reduction from the current 54).

The proposals have been examined carefully within the Council and the Council’s submission is available below:

This and other responses to the Commission will be detailed in due course on the Boundary Commission’s website.

The Commission’s consultation on these proposals closes on 10 June 2013.  The Commission’s final recommendations will be published in September and, subject to Parliamentary approval, implemented for the May 2014 Borough Elections.
