Community Governance Reviews
A community governance review (also known as a Parish Review) enables the District Council to review and put in place or make changes to community governance systems and structures – for example by creating, merging, abolishing or changing parish or town councils in the review area or plans to revise their boundaries.
The the aim of a review is to bring about improved community engagement, more cohesive communities, better local democracy and result in more effective and convenient delivery of local services. Community governance reviews can be intiated in one of 3 ways:-
1. By the District Council;
2. By a request of a parish council supported by the District Council; or
3. By a local petition requesting a Community Governance Review
