Time running out to have say on boundaries
10:30am Friday 11th October 2013 in News
THE clock is ticking on the consultation for new ward boundaries in west Dorset.
The independent Local Government Commission for England wants to hear from local people on where they think ward boundaries should be drawn for the district.
The commission is currently consulting on a proposal to produce a new pattern of wards for 43 councillors, five fewer than the current set up.
Max Caller, chairman of the commission, said: “We are asking local people and organisations 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.”
The current phase of consultation closes on November 11 and draft recommendations will be published in February 2014.
