New South Kesteven District Council boundaries come under fire
A founder member of South Kesteven District Council is concerned the ward boundary changes will affect the efficiency of local government.
Independent Coun Jeff Thompson has been a district councillor since 1971, orginally with West Kesteven Rural Council, and has always lived in Great Gonerby within his ward of Peascliffe.
Coun Thompson said: “Now the Boundary Commission in their ultimate wisdom, despite protestations from the parish council and South Kesteven District Council, decided that it would make sense to make the ward larger to also include Ancaster, Sudbrook, Normanton, Honington, Carlton Scroop, Barkston, Syston, Belton and Manthorpe.
