Residents can still have say on boundary proposals

Leamington Editorial 26th Jan, 2018   0

RESIDENTS still have time to have their say on how new council ward boundaries should be drawn across Warwick district.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England decided in November Warwick District Council should have 44 councillors in future – two fewer than the current set-up.

The commission is now asking people and organisations for their help to produce a new pattern of wards for the district council.

Commission chair Professor Colin Mellors said: “We are asking local people to help us draw up a new pattern of council wards for the whole district.




We want to hear local views on where people think the focal point of their community is and where the natural boundaries between communities might lie.

“As we draw new boundaries, we will try to ensure that each councillor represents roughly the same number of voters. We also aim to produce a pattern of wards that reflects the interests and identities of local communities.


“The commission will carefully consider all evidence presented to it during this phase of the review whoever it is from and whether it applies to the whole district or just a small part of it.”

The consultation closes on February 5. Visit www.lgbce.org.uk for further details.
