The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England has published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for Gloucester City Council.
The Commission’s final recommendations propose that Gloucester should be represented by 39 councillors – a small increase to reflect the growth of the city’s population. The recommendations also propose that those councillors should represent a total of 18 wards across the city.
