CDC councillors and wards to be reduced under new proposals
4:00pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in Cotswolds news
THE number of councillors sitting on Cotswold District Council looks set to be reduced.
The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England carried out a six-week consultation exercise earlier this year and is recommending that the number of elected representatives on CDC be reduced from 44 to 35 councillors.
Now the commission is calling for more feedback from residents to shape the new ward boundaries.
It aims to create 35 wards with roughly equal numbers of voters.
Residents have until November 11 to submit their views. Further information on the review and interactive maps of the existing wards can be found at www.lgbce.org.uk.
There will be further opportunity to have your say after the LGBC publishes its draft recommendations in February 2014.
