Cumbria county boundary review
Further electoral review
The Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) commenced the electoral review of Cumbria in 2010.
This Review looked at the electoral divisions in Cumbria and tried to find electoral equality, so each county councillor is looking after approximately the same number of electors.
The Order confirming the changes (PDF/66KB/12 pages) was made on 17 December 2012 and took effect at the County Council elections on 2 May 2013.
The main changes to the county electoral divisions are as follows:-
- Colton Parish has moved from Cartmel electoral division to High Furness
- Staveley-in-Cartmel parish has moved from Grange electoral division to Cartmel
- All of Kendal Castle District Ward is now in Kendal Nether Electoral Division
- All of Kendal Heron Hill District Ward is now in Kendal Castle Electoral Division
- All of Kendal Nether District Ward is now in Kendal Castle Electoral Division
- Kendal Romney District Ward is still split between Kendal Highgate electoral division and Kendal South and a number of streets and properties have moved from polling district BT1 (now renamed BT2) to BT4 (now renamed BT1)
- Kendal Stonecross District Ward remains split between Kendal Highgate electoral division and Kendal South, with some houses having moved from Polling District BU1 to BU2
