Deadline looms for boundary changes across South Ribble
3:56pm Monday 30th December 2013 in Chorley
Time is running out for people to comment on proposals for new council ward boundaries across South Ribble.
The public consultation run by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England closes on January 6.
The commission’s draft recommendations propose that South Ribble Borough Council should have 50 councillors in the future, five fewer than the current set up.
The proposals mean those councillors would represent 19 two-member and four three-member wards across the borough.
Commission chair Max Caller said: “We are keen to hear local views about our boundary proposals before we finalise them in March 2014.
“We want to make sure ward boundaries across South Ribble reflect the identities and interests of local communities as well as delivering electoral fairness for voters.
“This is your last chance to have your say before we finalise the recommendations.”
People can comment online at consultation.lgbce.org.uk.
The full recommendations and detailed maps are also available on the Commission’s main website at www.lgbce. org.uk/all-reviews/north-west/lancashire/south-ribble-fer.
Those who would like to make a submission to the commission, can write or email by January 6.
