Have Your Say On New Political Boundaries In Dorset

Council Boundaries

Published at 9:04am 31st October 2014. (Updated at 12:04am 2nd November 2014)

It'll change the political landscape of the county and you're being asked to help draw up new electoral divisions in Dorset.

The Local Government Boundary Commission wants to accommodate 46 county councillors for Dorset.

They're trying make sure each councillor represents roughly the same number of people.  You have you until 1st December to make your voice heard.

The review is also aiming to ensure that the new council divisions reflect the interests and identities of communities across Dorset.

Chair of the Commission Max Caller said: "If you have a view about which, communities, parishes or neighbourhoods should be part of the same county division, then we want to hear from you. And if you think a road, river or railway makes for a strong boundary between communities in your part of Dorset."

More information on the review and interactive maps of the existing boundaries can be found at www.consultation.lgbce.org.uk and www.lgbce.org.uk

The commission is asking residents:

- Do you have any suggestions about where your electoral division boundaries should be?

- Which areas do you identify as your local community?

- Where do people in your area go to access local facilities such as shops and leisure activities?
