Last chance to have your say on constituency boundaries

0

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is asking local people for their views on revised proposals for constituency boundaries.

Following a decision by Parliament to reduce the number of constituencies in the UK to 600 from 650, the BCE is conducting a third and final consultation to inform the review of all English constituencies.

Changes to Warrington North and South boundaries affecting Latchford have been put forward as part of the review.

Proposals and maps for the nine English regions, including the North West, have been published by the BCE and an eight week public consultation period is now open until 11 December 2017.

The consultation is the final time residents will have a chance to give the BCE their views on the proposed changes before the Boundary Commission’s final recommendations are taken to Parliament in September 2018.

Warrington Borough Council Chief Executive, Professor Steven Broomhead, said: “The boundary changes across the country will rewrite the political map and will reduce the number of MPs overall.

“The number of constituencies in the North West must reduce from 75 to 68 and there could be a potential impact on Warrington.

“Therefore it is important that the people of Warrington understand what the changes are and use their local knowledge to help inform the recommendations.”

Further information is available on the Boundary Commission website at https://www.bce2018.org.uk/. A hard copy of the proposals is also available for inspection at Birchwood Library and the Contact Centre on Horsemarket Street in the town centre.
