Hammersmith & Fulham Council adopted a new constitution which sets out how the Council operates, how decisions are made and the procedures which are followed to ensure that it is efficient, transparent and accountable to local people. Some of these processes are required by the law, while others are a matter for the Council to choose.

Local Government Boundary Review

In July 2018, the Local Government Boundary Commission began a three-year programme of electoral reviews of London Boroughs that had not been reviewed in the previous 5 years.

An electoral review recommends new ward boundaries that mean each councillor will represent approximately the same number of voters. The Commission also aim to ensure that the pattern of wards reflect the interests and identities of local communities as well as promoting effective local government.

The Commission’s final recommendations were published on 2 June 2020. They propose that Hammersmith & Fulham should have 50 councillors, four more than we currently have. Those councillors should represent eight three-councillor wards and 13 two-councillor wards across the borough. The Commission is recommending ward boundary changes in the Fulham area, as well as modifications to College Park & Old Oak and White City wards.

Pending Parliamentary approval, these changes will come into effect at the local elections in 2022.

More detail about the proposals, including an interactive map, is available on the Local Government Boundary Commission’s website at: www.lgbce.org.uk
