Share views on changes to boundaries

Voters are encouraged to have their say on ward boundary proposals for Canterbury, Whitstable and Herne Bay. The Boundary Commission is exploring the possibility of shrinking the authority from 50 to 39 councillors. The changes would mean there would be five wards with one councillor each, 11 with two councillors and four with three councillors. Chairman Max Catler says:

“We are asking local people to log on to our website or visit their library to have a look at our proposals. We are keen to hear what people think of the recommendations and to tell us if they agree with the proposals.”

Mr Caller says the new boundaries will ensure each councillor represents a similar number of people, meaning everyone’s vote is worth roughly the same. He adds:

“We will consider all the submissions we receive whoever they are from and whether your evidence applies to the whole of Canterbury or just a part of the council area.”
