Notice of a Community Governance review of the parish arrangements for Rogate

NOTICE OF A COMMUNITY GOVERNANCE REVIEW OF THE PARISH ARRANGEMENTS FOR ROGATE

Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007

Local Government (Parish and Parish Councils) (England) Regulations 2008

Chichester District Council has agreed to undertake a community governance review of the parish arrangements for Rogate with regard to decreasing the number of Parish Councillors that sit on Rogate Parish Council.  At present, it has 13 Members but the parish council has requested a decrease to 9 members.

Section 79 of the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007 allows the Council to undertake a community governance review of the whole or part of its area. The Council is not proposing a major review of parish arrangements within the Chichester District at this time.

The Council is now undertaking the first stage of the review process and residents and interested organisations are therefore asked to give their views on whether they would support the decrease in members from 13 to 9.

Your representations and comments should be sent to:

Electoral Services

Chichester District Council

Alternatively, they may be emailed to elections@chichester.gov.uk

The deadline for any representations to be received is Wednesday, 16 June 2021.

 Any representations received will be considered by the Boundary Review Panel and the decision will be made by Full Council.

Should you require any further information or need clarification on the review process, then please contact the elections office on 01243 521010.
