Last chance to have your say on Lincolnshire boundary changes

Time is running out for local people to tell the independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England what they think of proposals for new county division boundaries across Lincolnshire.

The public consultation closes on Monday, February 8.

The Commission’s draft recommendations propose that Lincolnshire County Council should have 70 county councillors in the future, seven fewer than the current arrangements.

The proposals mean those councillors would represent 70 single-member electoral divisions across the county.

Professor Colin Mellors, Chair of the Commission, said: “We are keen to hear local views about our boundary proposals before we finalise them in April.

“We want to make sure division boundaries across Lincolnshire reflect the identities and interests of local communities as well as delivering electoral fairness for voters.

“This is your last chance to have your say before we finalise the recommendations.”

Local people can have their say directly by visiting www.consultation.lgbce.org.uk.

The full recommendations and detailed maps are also available on the Commission’s main website at: http://www.lgbce.org.uk/current-reviews/east-midlands/lincolnshire/lincolnshire-county-council

The Commission wants to hear as much evidence as possible in order to develop final recommendations for Lincolnshire. If you would like to make a submission to the Commission, or email reviews@lgbce.org.uk by February 8.
