Electoral Review of Rushcliffe Borough

May 17th, 2021

Good morning,

As you may have seen in the local media, The Local Government Boundary Commission for England has launched a public consultation inviting proposals to maintain the current pattern of electoral wards for Rushcliffe Borough Council.

This includes their recommendation that 44 councillors should continue to be elected to the Council in future instead of a previous proposal to the authority it could increase to 46 in line with the Borough’s increasing populations.

They are now inviting proposals from local councils, interested parties and members of the public until July 19, 2021 and you can have your say at https://consultation.lgbce.org.uk/have-your-say/27236 which contains links to guidance and maps of the current wards.

The Commission are also giving more information about the review and answering questions at a community online briefing on Monday May 24 at 6pm designed to inform a wider group of stakeholders about the current position and gain a better understanding of our communities’ make-up.

You can watch the live briefing and ask questions and the video will be available after the meeting.

The authority have highlighted in drawing up a pattern of electoral wards, they must balance the three statutory criteria they are required to follow:

  • Make sure that, within an authority, each councillor represents a similar number of electors
  • Create boundaries that are appropriate, and reflect community ties and identities
  • Deliver reviews informed by local needs, views and circumstances

 

Views can also be submitted by email to reviews@lgbce.org.uk or by post to:

Review Officer (Rushcliffe)

They plan to publish proposals for new electoral arrangements in October with further consultation planned between then and December and intend to publish final recommendations in March 2022.
