For Hampshire, the review will recommence, having originally begun last September but was then halted after the government announced changes to the Local Government Commission's guidance and timetable.
The Commission has set up a South East review team for the five counties. It will first invite submissions for any changes during the first quarter of next year and will then evaluate these before publishing draft recommendations for two month's period of public consultation.
After considering local reaction, the Commission expects to make final recommendations during next summer and autumn to the Environment Secretary.
The closing date for East Sussex and West Sussex submissions will be at the end of April with final recommendations due by the end of October.
