Alcester residents asked for opinions on county ward boundaries
4:12pm Wednesday 4th June 2014 in News
ALCESTER residents have until Monday, June 23 to voice their opinions over prospective changes to the ward boundaries for Warwickshire county councillors.
The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is asking people to take part in the consultation to produce a new map of electoral divisions for 57 county councillors.
Max Caller, chair of the commission, said: “We are asking local people and organisations to help us draw up a new pattern of electoral divisions for the whole county.
“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 county councillor represents roughly the same number of voters. We also aim to produce a pattern of divisions that reflects the interests and identities of 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 county or just a small part of it.”
Once local views have been gathered, the commission will be publishing its draft recommendations for a new pattern of divisions in September.
