Wiltshire’s political boundaries may not be moved but people are being invited to give their views.
The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England proposes that Wiltshire should have 98 councillors: no change.
The commission today, February 5, launched a 10-week public consultation ending on April 15. The consultation is open to anyone who wants to have their say on new council divisions, division boundaries and division names across Wiltshire.
The full recommendations and detailed interactive maps are on the commission’s website at consultation.lgbce.org.uk and www.lgbce.org.uk. Hard copies of the commission’s report and maps can be seen, by request, at County Hall, Trowbridge.
The Wiltshire Council Electoral Review Committee will accept copies of submissions sent to email@example.com
- In July 2019, the final recommendations of the Local Government Boundary Commission for England will be published. A draft order will be prepared for laying in Parliament, where the recommendations may be accepted or rejected, but not amended
Should the recommendations be accepted, they will be implemented for elections in May, 2021.
