Arlesey Community Governance Review consultation Stage 2

What are we consulting on?

We want your views on a process called a Community Governance Review, for the parish of Arlesey. A community governance review enables a local authority such as Central Bedfordshire Council to review and put in place or make changes to community governance systems and structures.

For a Community Governance Review, there are two stages of consultation. We have completed the first stage, in which we asked for people’s views on a proposal to change the number of Town Councillors. Following analysis of consultation feedback which indicated a preference to reduce the numbers of councillors, a report was considered by the council’s General Purposes Committee, which is now recommending a reduction from twelve to seven Arlesey Town Councillors.

This second consultation stage asks people their thoughts on this recommendation.
