Community Governance Review: background

Following the receipt of a valid petition to establish a Community (Urban Parish) Council in Queen’s Park, the council resolved to conduct a Community Governance Review of Westminster.

The Review was conducted in accordance with the following Terms of Reference.

In particular, the Review made recommendations as to:

  • whether or not to establish new parishes
  • the electoral arrangements of any new parish council
  • whether or not to introduce any new community governance arrangements other than those relating to parishes and parish councils

Guidance on Community Governance Reviews
