LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOUNDARY COMMISSION PROPOSALS FOR WARD BOUNDARIES
The Local Government Boundary Commission for England has published its draft proposals for boundary changes to Nottingham City Council wards.
It is conducting a public consultation on these proposals, to run from 31 October to 15 January 2018. The proposals are that, whilst Nottingham should continue to be represented by 55 councillors, the number of wards should increase to 23, three more than there are at present. As a result, the boundaries of 19 wards will need to change, the only ward boundaries remaining the same as they are now being Bestwood, Bulwell, Bulwell Forest and Wollaton West.
Members of the public are encouraged to submit their views and help shape the design of the new wards. The Commission states that the ore public views it hears, the more informed its decision will be when analysing all the views it receives.
Everyone wishing to contribute ideas for the new wards is asked to first read the report and look at the accompanying map before responding to the consultation.
