Interim electoral reviews 2010

In 2010, we embarked on a small number of Interim Reviews of electoral arrangements, as a result of an assessment of ward electorates across all of Scotland's 353 electoral wards. We found that 10 wards needed further consideration and decided to carry out Interim Reviews in these cases.

As a result, on 25 November 2010, we published for public consultation our Provisional Proposals for a change to the electoral arrangements in Ward 8 of West Lothian Council area, and Interim Decisions to recommend no change in each of the other cases. The public consultation period lasted 13 weeks, ending on 24 February 2011.

Upon consideration of the representations received in response to our public consultation, we decided that our Provisional Proposals and Interim Decisions should be adopted as our Final Recommendations. We reported to Scottish Ministers in June 2011. These recommendations were accepted and implemented by Scottish Ministers.
