Barnoldby Le Beck Community Governance Review


Why undertake a review?

At the request of Barnoldby Le Beck Parish Council, North East Lincolnshire Council is currently undertaking a community governance review in respect of the parish of Barnoldby Le Beck.

The parish council has written to North East Lincolnshire Council to request an increase in the number of parish councillors from five to six. To justify their request, the parish council points out that has been approximately 10 dwellings built in the past 5 years and there is possibility of a further 82 dwellings on land at Bradley Road if the planning application is approved. An outline planning application has already been approved for 66 houses on this site.

The parish council believes that an increase in the number of parish councillors will allow these new residents to be better represented.

The parish of Barnoldby Le Beck currently has an electorate of 301.

Community Governance Review

Following the request, on 17 December 2020, Elected Members from North East Lincolnshire Council agreed to undertake a community governance review to consider this request. A community governance review is a legal process which needs to be followed to determine whether or not to increase the number of parish councillors at Barnoldby Le Beck Parish Council.

As part of that review, the views of local residents, Parish Council, Ward Councillors, MPs, political parties and other key stakeholders are requested.
