Local Government Boundary Reviews in England Go Digital

September 18, 2012 -- The Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) has partnered with Informed Solutions to launch its local area consultation portal.  Based on the InformedCONSULT platform, the cloud-based portal transforms how the Commission engages with the public on electoral boundary reviews, delivering interactive street-level mapping and allowing users to review and comment on changes in their local areas.

Alan Cogbill, Chief Executive of the LGBCE explained: “The portal represents a breakthrough in the way we consult and manage public engagement.  Councillors, parishes, community organisations and members of the public will all be able to make their case to the Commission in a way that’s accessible and extremely easy to use.

The portal makes it easier for local residents to look at our proposals at a level of detail that suits them and it will help them make the most effective case to the Commission if they want to challenge or support recommendations. It significantly increases the reach of the Commission’s consultation process in a cost effective way.”

InformedCONSULT (Informed Solutions’ Consultation and Collaboration Platform) provides a secure, public portal that uses intuitive mapping, gazetteer and the latest web technologies to guide the public quickly and easily through the consultation process.  The secure service also supports the Commission meeting its statutory legal and audit requirements.

Seth Finegan, Informed Solutions’ Director of Consultancy Services said: “We are pleased that our platform continues to be seen as the ideal solution for modernising complex, area-based public consultation processes. Providing an interactive online service encourages greater public engagement and high quality responses; whilst reducing the administrative burden on the LGBCE. In very practical terms, the consultation portal offers exceptional levels of flexibility and value for money.”

The Commission is responsible for undertaking reviews of local authority electoral arrangements, including reviews of the number, names and boundaries of its wards or electoral divisions (county, borough or district council). The Commission consults publicly during the review process and welcomes the views of councils, community groups and members of the public as it draws up initial recommendations and before it puts forward final recommendations. It carries out around 25 electoral reviews each year, with each review lasting around 52-62 weeks and involving three phases of public consultation.
