Last Call For Views On Council Ward Boundaries

  • Written by Editor

Local Romsey News | Last call for views on council ward boundaries | Andover & VillagesThere are just a few days left for local people to tell the independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England where they think new council ward boundaries should be drawn across Test Valley.

The Commission is carrying out an electoral review of Test Valley which means re-drawing ward boundaries across the borough. The Commission is asking local people for their views on new warding arrangements before it draws up its recommendations.

The Commission will consider all views put to it during the consultation and aims to publish draft recommendations for new ward boundaries for Test Valley Borough Council in June 2017.

In January, the Commission agreed that the council should have 43 councillors in the future: five fewer than the current arrangements. It now aims to draw up ward boundaries that mean each of those councillors represents a similar number of voters and that the new wards reflect the interest and identities of local communities.

Professor Colin Mellors, Chair of the Commission, said: "We will consider every submission we receive from local people before we draw up draft recommendations. We will then open another phase of consultation on those proposals in June.

"Don't miss this chance to have your say on how your council is run."

This phase of public consultation closes on 3 April 2017.

Consultation responses should be sent to:
