Community Governance Review

During 2022, St Albans City and District Council is conducting a review of the whole district, looking at community governance arrangements at parish council / town council level.  

Community governance allows people living in a community, and who therefore have a vested interest in that community, to make the decisions affecting it. Focusing on community in this way, distinguishes this form of governance from others where people may not be directly affected by the decisions they take.

The purpose of the review is to ensure that community governance arrangements reflect local identities and interests, and are effective and convenient for electors and elected representatives.  

Community governance reviews may consider a variety of topics, including:

  • whether to create a new parish / town council
  • whether to alter parish / town council electoral arrangements (e.g. number of wards / number of councillors)
  • whether to alter the boundary of an existing parish / town council
  • whether to group a number of parishes together

Further information about community governance reviews is available on The Local Government Boundary Commission for England’s website:

St Albans City and District Council’s public consultation will begin in January 2022.

During the consultation period, information about the review will be available on St Albans City and District Council’s website and at the Civic Centre council offices.

Contact Electoral Services on for further information about the review.
