A community governance review considers arrangements for parish councils such as creating, merging, altering or abolishing parish councils, changing a parish council’s boundary or the naming of parish councils and their electoral arrangements.
From 13 February to the 6 April, Herefordshire Council conducted a parish wide consultation with the community of Brockhampton Group Parish in connection with their community governance review.
During that consultation, Brockhampton Group Parish Council were seeking to review the number of seats within the group so as to better reflect the number of electors, which would address the issue and strengthen the democratic process. Following the first phase of consultation, the balance of evidence indicated that there are sufficient grounds to progress to formally proposing to reduce the current number of Parish Council seats from 15 to 10, to better reflect the number of electors within the Brockhampton Group Parish.
