Electoral Review

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England has carried out an electoral review of the borough of Doncaster.

Full details are available on the Local Government Boundary Commission’s website

Number of councillors

The first part of the review considered the total number of councillors that should be elected to the council in the future. The Commission decided that the council should have 55 councillors, a reduction from the previous number of 63.

Ward boundaries

The Commission then considered the ward boundaries that could accommodate the reduced number of councillors. It gathered information from local people and organisations on suggested ward boundaries.

There were periods of consultation before the Commission published their final recommendations of 21 wards including:

  • 13 wards with three councillors
  • and eight wards with two councillors

When will it happen?

Following approval by Parliament, this will come into effect for the elections in May 2015. The Secretary of State has already announced that the council must hold 'all out' elections:

  • the 2015 election will be for a two year term of office 
  • the 2017 election, and future elections, will run alongside the mayoral election with all seats being contested for a four year term
