Final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for Leicestershire County Council, including the divisions covering Melton and the Vale of Belvoir, have been published by the independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England.

Following a public consultation on its draft recommendations, the commission has drawn new boundaries for each electoral division across Leicestershire. For Melton and the Vale its final recommendations are for:

l A Melton East division (comprising of the Melton Borough Council’s Craven, Newport and Warwick wards together with part of the Sysonby ward which lies to the east of Scalford Road)

l A Melton West division (comprising of the borough council’s Dorian and Egerton wards together with part of the Sysonby ward which lies to the west of Scalford Road)

l A Melton Wolds division (comprising of the parishes of Ab Kettleby, Asfordby, Broughton and Old Dalby, Burton and Dalby, Freeby, Frisby, Gaddesby, Grimston, Hoby with Rotherby, Kirby Bellars, Knossington and Cold Overton, Somerby, Twyford and Thorpe and Wymondham)

l A Belvoir Ward (comprising of the parishes of Belvoir, Bottesford, Buckminster, Clawson, Hose and Harby, Croxton Kerrial, Eaton, Garthorpe, Redmile, Scalford, Sproxton, Stathern and Waltham-on-the-Wolds and Thorpe Arnold).

The commission’s proposed new arrangements must now be approved by Parliament. The new arrangements are set to come into force at the county council elections in 2017.
