Community Governance Reviews

Community Governance Reviews

Mid Sussex District Council is responsible for the electoral arrangements for all of the Town and Parish Councils within its boundaries. Powers were devolved under the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007. These powers include the creation and grouping of parishes and everything pertaining to their electoral arrangements. The decision making process is laid out in the Act as a Community Governance Review. 

This can be instigated in one of three ways:

  1. by a petition from local electors
  2. by the Council agreeing to a request for a review
  3. or by the Council resolving to conduct a review.
