Electoral Review for Royal Borough begins

A review of the Royal Borough’s ward boundaries has begun giving residents a chance to have their say on the proposals.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England has announced the borough should have 43 councillors in the future, 14 fewer than the current number.

In a consultation that opened earlier this week residents can submit their comments on how the borough’s ward boundaries should be redrawn to reflect these changes.

Cllr Simon Dudley, leader of the council, said: “We are a forward thinking council and want to make sure that residents are fairly represented as we continue to build a borough for everyone.

“The current wards are beginning to become imbalanced and this review will create electoral equality for everyone as the borough grows.

“The commission wants to hear your feedback and I would encourage residents to have a look at the plans and get involved.”

This consultation offers residents the chance to shape which communities and neighbourhoods should be included in the same ward.
