The Commission is carrying out an electoral review of Scarborough Borough Council.
The aim of the electoral review is to recommend ward boundaries that mean each 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 ward boundaries across Scarborough.
The consultation on our warding arrangements for Scarborough Borough Council has now closed.
Below are all of the submissions we received:
Parish and Town Councils:
On 27 June 2017, we started the first period of consultation for a pattern of wards for Scarborough Borough Council. Between 27 June 2017 and 4 September 2017, we invited comments on the ward boundaries for the authority.
The Commission has also announced that it is minded to recommend that Scarborough Borough Council should have 45 councillors in the future; a reduction of five.
The Commission needed information from people and groups across Scarborough to help it to produce a new pattern of wards to accommodate 45 councillors.
For more information, read our news release and the letter to the Chief Executive of Scarborough Borough Council.
