We're carrying out a Community Governance Review (CGR) of the parish arrangements for Lucas Close, Queenborough (Sheerness Town Council) and Great Easthall Estate, Tonge (Tonge Parish Council) under the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007.

In reviewing the parish arrangements we've considered the guidance on community governance reviews published by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) in March 2010, which includes guidance issued by the Secretary of State and the Local Government Boundary Commission for England under section 100 of the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007 and relevant parts of the Local Government Act 1972.

Following the initial consultation we will consider all representations and report draft recommendations to council on 27 July 2022.
