The Commission is carrying out an electoral review of Bolsover District Council.
The aim of the electoral review is to recommend ward boundaries that mean each district councillor represents approximately the same number of voters.
We also aim to ensure that the pattern of wards reflects the interests and identities of local communities as well as promoting effective local government. In order to achieve these aims, we need to re-draw boundaries across Bolsover District Council." />
The consultation on warding arrangements closed on the 30 January 2017.
Listed below are the submissions we received for this stage of the consultation:
Bolsover District Council Labour Group
Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service
Parish and Town Councils:
The submissions from local residents have been collated into one document below. They have been sorted alphabetically, by surname.
On 22nd November 2016, we started the first period of consultation for a pattern of wards for Bolsover District Council. Between 22nd November 2016 and 30th January 2017, we invited comments on the ward boundaries for the authority.
The Commission announced that it was minded to recommend that Bolsover District Council should have 37 councillors in the future, which is the same number as present.
The Commission needed information from people and groups across Bolsover to help it to produce a new pattern of wards to accommodate 37 councillors.
For more information read our news release and the letter to the Chief Executive of Bolsover District Council (PDF).
