Have your say on ward boundary review

People have just days left to have their say on an electoral review of Wellingborough Council’s local ward boundaries.

The Boundary Commission consultation, which closes on Tuesday, June 4, asks people for their views on new warding arrangements before the Commission draws up draft recommendations.

The Commission will consider all views put to it during the consultation and aims to publish draft recommendations for new ward boundaries for Wellingborough Council in August.

In January, the Commission agreed that the council should continue to have 36 councillors in the future. It now aims to draw up ward boundaries that mean each of those councillors represents a similar number of voters and that the new wards reflect the interests and identities of local communities.

Max Caller, Chair of the Commission, said: “We will consider every submission we receive before we draw up draft recommendations. We will then open another phase of consultation on those proposals in a few months.

“Don’t miss this chance to have your say on how your council is run.”

Consultation responses should be sent to: The Review Officer (Wellingborough), Layden House, 76-86 Turnmill Street, London, EC1M 5LG.
