What is a Community Governance Review (CGR)?

These reviews were previously called Parish Reviews. The Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007 moved the responsibility for these reviews to principal councils with a requirement that they be held every 10 to 15 years.

CGRs enable us to review and make changes to community governance systems and structures eg by merging councils or changing the number of councillors on a parish council.

They allow us to ask the public, parish councils and any interested group whether they feel their communities are suitably represented.

The 2013 Review was conducted with reference to Part 4 of the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007 and the relevant national guidance on community governance reviews (PDF/321KB/53 pages).
