The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is asking residents of the borough how many councillors they think should represent Corby Council.

The commission wants to know whether the borough should continue to be represented by 29 councillors or whether there should be more, or fewer, in the future.

The six-week public consultation is the first part of an electoral review which will also consider changes to the number, names and boundaries of the council’s wards.

Max Caller, chairman of the commission, said: “This is your chance to shape your council for the future. We are asking people across the borough if they agree that 29 councillors is still the right number to represent Corby in future.

“We want to know if you think 29 is the right number of councillors to be able to take decisions effectively and whether it’s the right number to represent the interests of all Corby’s communities.

“If you don’t agree that Corby should be represented by 29 councillors, we want you to tell us your alternative and why you think there should be more, or fewer, members of the council in the future.

“Once we have taken a view on the number of councillors for Corby, we will re-draw ward boundaries to accommodate those elected members and we will be asking local people to have their say during that process as well.”
