The first round of consultation in relation to the Community Governance Review for Keele Parish Council has now concluded. No responses have been received.
The proposals therefore remain as set out in the terms of reference attached below:-
Following a request from Keele Parish Council, a community governance review will be carried out by Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council under the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007. The review will comply with the law, have regard for statutory guidance and will be conducted in line with these terms of reference.
What is a Community Governance Review?
It is a review of the whole or part of a district/parish area to consider one or more of the following:

- The electoral arrangements for parishes (the ordinary year of election, council size, the number of councillors to be elected to the council and parish warding)
When carrying out any review the Council will be guided by:
- Part four of the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007
- Local Government (Parishes and Parish Councils)(England) Regulations 2008
