Rushmoor Boundary/ Electoral Changes
We have received confirmation from the Local Government Boundary Commission that they have decided to adopt a Council size of 39 (we currently have 42 councillors - 3 in 14 wards) for the purposes of the next stage of the review which will commence formally on 30 November. At that time they will invite all interested parties to submit proposals for new wards based on a council size of 39 and the consultation will run until 21 February 2011.
The Commission received three submissions on council size – including the Council’s own submission – and these are all available to view on their website http://www.lgbce.org.uk/all-reviews/south-east/hampshire/rushmoor-electoral-review
We are continuing work on preparing the council’s submission together with the Electoral Review Group.
