Welcome to the website for the Review of Local Government Boundaries in Northern Ireland (2008/2009).

The LGBC Office is now closed and any queries should be addressed to the Local Government Policy Division of the Department of the Environment.

The task of the Boundaries Commissioner was to formulate proposals for the boundaries and names of the eleven new districts referred to in the Local Government (Boundaries) (Northern Irleand) Act 2008 and for the number, boundaries and names of their constituent wards.
