Community governance review

Bracknell Forest has published its final recommendations for the recently completed community governance review.

All documents including responses to both consultations, draft recommendations and other review documents are available below.

What happens next

The council will now ask the Local Government Boundary Commission for ‘consent’ to make the changes outlined in the Final Recommendations.

Should the council receive consent the changes will then be implemented in time for the next elections on 2 May 2023.

The council would like to thank all those who provided comments and submissions throughout both stages of the review.
