The proposed new county council ward boundaries for Lincolnshire have been revealed.

The Local Government Boundary Commission has redrawn the boundaries after a public consultation exercise in an attempt to spread the population more evenly between county councillors. This would result in there being seven fewer councillors.

In the Journal area, the current eight wards would remain but boundary lines would change and so would names.

Grantham North would become Ancaster and Manthorpe and it would expland to the north and take in the Honington area. Meanwhile, a large swathe of Grantham North to the west would become the Hough ward.

Grantham North West would be split between Green Hill and Ancaster and Manthorpe.

Grantham East would become Belton Park, Grantham Barrowby would be Barrowby and Grantham South would be Spittlegate.

Colsterworth Rural would retain its name but would spread out to the east to take in Boothby Pagnell, Bitchfield and Burton-Le-Coggles.

Folkingham Rural would become Upper Glens, and would include Haconby and Stainfield, but would lose some villages north of Corby Glen.

The proposed boundaries are up for public consultation until February 8 and residents are invited to have their say.
