Council Boundary Legislation 26 April 2012

Legislation laid on eleven new council boundaries

The draft Local Government (Boundaries) Order has been laid in the Assembly.

The legislation will set the boundaries of eleven new local government districts as well as the number, boundaries and names of the wards into which each district will be divided.

Environment Minister Alex Attwood said: The draft Order is a further step towards the reorganisation of local government.

The purpose of the Order is to set the boundaries of the new local government districts and their wards. After extensive public consultation, the Local Government Boundaries Commissioner recommended the boundaries of the eleven new districts. The Assembly accepted the recommendations with two slight modifications.

The Order will be considered by the Environment Committee. If councils or others have views on the boundaries, they will have the opportunity to advise the Committee. Before the summer, I hope the boundaries will be debated in the Assembly.

I believe in radical reform. This extends to across public policy in Northern Ireland. It includes councils.

The first meeting of the reform programmes Regional Transition Committee will also take place today. It will be chaired by the Minister and will have political representation from each council cluster and NILGA. The committee will provide high level political leadership in delivering local government reform.
