The Local Government Boundary Commission for England has carried out an electoral review of the borough of Doncaster.

Number of councillors
The first part of the review considered the total number of councillors that should be elected to the council in the future. The Commission decided that the council should have 55 councillors, a reduction from the previous number of 63.
The Commission then considered the ward boundaries that could accommodate the reduced number of councillors. It gathered information from local people and organisations on suggested ward boundaries.
There were periods of consultation before the Commission published their final recommendations of 21 wards including:
- 13 wards with three councillors
- and eight wards with two councillors
