Have Your Say On Election Ward Boundaries

Vote

8:50am 11th March 2014

The Boundary Commission wants your views on planned changes to Dorset's ward set-up and their names.

A draft proposal has been put to the public for consultation and feedback.

The Independent Local Government Boundary Commission wants to see 6 less councillors in West Dorset and wards to be redrawn.

The 11 week public consultation on the recommendations run until the 28th April and it's open to anyone who wants to have their say on new council wards, boundaries and ward names across West Dorset.

Max Caller CBE Chair of the Commission, said: "We are publishing proposals for a new pattern of wards across West Dorset and we are keen to hear what local people think of the recommendations.

Over the next eleven weeks, we are asking local people to tell us if they agree with the proposals or if not, how they can be improved.

Our review aims to deliver electoral equality for all voters. This means that each councillor represents a similar number of people so that everyone's in council elections is worth roughly the same regardless of where you live."
