Boundaries set to change across Warwick district

Leamington Editorial 29th Nov, 2017   0

BOUNDARIES across Warwick district are set to change.

The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is asking district residents to help draw up a new pattern of council wards for Warwick District Council.

It is also looking to recruit 44 councillors, reducing the current number by two.

The commission aims to deliver electoral equality for voters in council elections so that each councillor represents roughly the same number of voters.




Commission chair Colin Mellors said: “As we develop the recommendations, we will take into account local community identities as well as ensuring electoral equality for voters.

“If you have a view about which communities or neighbourhoods should be part of the same council ward, then we want to hear from you. And if you think a road, river or railway makes for a strong boundary between communities in your part of Warwick, then this consultation is for you.


“Your views will make a difference.

“We will carefully consider all evidence that is provided during this phase of the review whoever it is from and whether it applies to the whole of Warwick or just a small part of the council area.

“Residents will then have a further chance to have their say after we publish our draft recommendations in May 2018.”

Residents can view ward maps and have their say at consultation.lgbce.org.uk until February 5.
