Setting the boundaries in Harrow


Recommendations for changes to Harrow’s ward boundaries have been published following consultation with the people who live and work here – and here’s a final chance to say what you think of them.

The proposals from the Boundary Commission – aimed at ensuring each ward has roughly the same number of voters – include Harrow being represented by 55 councillors in the future, 8 fewer than now, and having an extra ward - 22 in total.

The division lines tend to run alongside roads or railway tracks to increase or reduce the size of the wards. Eagle-eyed residents will notice a few changes to ward names to reflect the times – even seeing the return of Centenary.

The redrawing of the borough’s internal divisions comes as part of a review by England's Boundary Commission, which looked  into local electoral areas across the country. Its report will now be presented to Parliament.

Local people now have until 11 February 2019 to put forward their views on the changes. Further information can be found on the Boundary Commission’s website.
