The Review had four main phases:

  • Phase 1: August – October 2012. A consultant reviewed background data, and started the first public consultation process.
  • Phase 2: October – December 2012. A consultant created draft options for revised ward boundaries. Then, the consultant put together an interim report for the General Committee.
  • Phase 3: January 2013. The General Committee held a second public consultation on the draft in the interim report.
  • Phase 4: February – March 2013. The Committee put together final options and their final report for General Committee and Council.
