A public consultation on proposals to change 29 current ward boundaries will close on 19th February 2018, with locals being invited to have their say on how the communities are structured.
The recommendations have been drawn up by the independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England.
The Commission is asking people and organisations for their help to produce a new pattern of wards for 59 councillors: six fewer than the current set up.
Professor Colin Mellors, Chair of the Commission, said: “This is the last chance for local people to have their say on ward boundaries for all councillors in Bath and North East Somerset.
“We want to hear evidence from the people who know Bath and North East Somerset best about the shape of local communities across the council area before we finalise our recommendations in May.”
Local people can have their say directly, by visiting https://consultation.lgbce.org.uk/node/9913.
The full recommendations and detailed maps are also available on the Commission’s main website at www.lgbce.org.uk/current-reviews/south-west/somerset/bath-and-north-east-somerset.
The Commission wants to hear as much evidence as possible in order to develop final recommendations for Bath and North East Somerset.
If you would like to make a submission to the Commission, write or email by 19th February 2018.
