Poole and North Dorset residents: have you had your say on proposed ward changes yet?

Bournemouth Echo: Poole and North Dorset residents: have you had your say on proposed ward changes yet? Poole and North Dorset residents: have you had your say on proposed ward changes yet?

TIME is running out for residents of Poole and North Dorset to have their say on proposed changes to electoral ward boundaries.

The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is asking people for their views for both authorities before draft recommendations are published in March and April.

For Poole, it was agreed in November that the council should continue to have 42 councillors and it now aims to draw up ward boundaries so that each represents a similar number of voters.

The commission also recommends that North Dorset keeps 33 councillors, with those councillors representing seven single-member, 10 two-member and two three-member wards across the district.

The consultation for North Dorset finishes on January 6, while the deadline is a day later for Poole.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England is responsible for conducting reviews of local authority electoral arrangements.

The Commission can also conduct reviews of the structure of local government, and the external boundaries of local authorities.

It was established on 1 April 2010, when it took on the functions of the Boundary Committee for England.

Not much point in wasting one's time, regardless of lines draw on a map, there will still be a crowd of self-centred egotistical windbags as Councillors!

We received a note telling us the LGCB had already decided the changes to the boundaries though I cannot find any reference to proposed changes online...only the boundaries 'as is'. Can anyone shed any light on this?
