Newton-le-Willows East and West Town Council proposal

Following the receipt of a valid petition, St Helens Borough Council has carried out a Community Governance Review (CGR) and considered whether a new town council should be created to represent the Newton-le-Willows East and West wards.

Following two public consultations and the results of the Newton-le-Willows East and West postal ballot, at its meeting on 15 November 2023 Council approved the Final Recommendation proposed by Community Governance Review Cross-Party Working Group not to proceed with the petition proposal to create a new town council.
