Last chance to have a say on new South Kesteven electoral boundaries

Have your say

The consultation on plans to redraft the district boundaries and reduce the number of district councillors on South Kesteven District Council is about to close.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England is carrying out an electoral review of South Kesteven which means re-drawing ward boundaries across the district.

The commission is asking local people for their views on new warding arrangements before it draws up its recommendations.

The commission will consider all views put to it during the consultation and aims to publish draft recommendations for new ward boundaries for South Kesteven District Council in October.

In May, the commission agreed that the council should have 55 councillors in the future, three fewer than the current arrangements.

It now aims to draw up ward boundaries that mean each of those councillors represents a similar number of voters and that the new wards reflect the interest and identities of local communities.

Max Caller, Chair of the Commission, said: “We will consider every submission we receive from local people before we draw up draft recommendations. We will then open another phase of consultation on those proposals in a few months.

“Don’t miss this chance to have your say on how your council is run.”

This phase of public consultation closes on 5 August 2013.

Consultation responses should be sent to:
