Have your say

There are just a few days left for local people to tell the independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England what they think of proposals for new county council division boundaries across Cambridgeshire.

The public consultation closes on 20 June 2016.

The Commission’s draft recommendations propose that Cambridgeshire Council should have 61 county councillors in the future: eight fewer than the current arrangements.

The proposals mean those councillors would represent 51 single-member divisions and five two-member divisions across the county.

Professor Colin Mellors, Chair of the Commission, said: “We are keen to hear local views about our boundary proposals before we finalise them in September.

“We want to make sure ward boundaries across Cambridgeshire reflect the identities and interests of local communities as well as delivering electoral fairness for voters.

“This is your last chance to have your say before we finalise the recommendations.”

Local people can have their say directly by visiting www.consultation.lgbce.org.uk.

The full recommendations and detailed maps are also available on the Commission’s main website at www.lgbce.org.uk/current-reviews/eastern/cambridgeshire/cambridgeshire-county-council.

The Commission wants to hear as much evidence as possible in order to develop final recommendations for Cambridgeshire. If you would like to make a submission to the Commission, please write or email by 20 June 2016.
