Clock ticking for ward boundaries consultation

Time is running out for local people to tell the independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England what they think of proposals for new ward boundaries across Fenland.

The public consultation closes on 7 January 2013.

The Commission’s draft recommendations propose that Fenland District Council should have 39 councillors in future, one fewer than the current arrangements. The proposals also mean changes to ward boundaries across the district.

Max Caller, Chair of the Commission, said: ”We are keen to hear local views about our boundary proposals before we finalise them early next year.

“We want to make sure Fenland’s council wards reflect the interests and identities of local communities as well as delivering electoral fairness to voters. Time is running out to have your say.”

The Commission’s full recommendations and interactive maps are available at and on the Commission’s website at Copies of the Commission’s report and maps have also been made available to view at council buildings and libraries.
