The Boundary Committee announces proposals for electoral arrangements in Lincoln

This is an archived news release and links may no longer work.

Final plans for new electoral arrangements in Lincoln are being submitted to The Electoral Commission today. The recommendations from The Boundary Committee for England mark the end of a review which began in August 2004. They include changes to ward boundaries across the borough.

 

Pamela Gordon, Chair of the Committee said: In June 2005, a 12-week period of public consultation on the draft recommendations began. The responses lead to some changes to our original proposals. The aim of the review has been to ensure that, as far as possible, one persons vote should have the same value as anothers.

 

The Electoral Commission is now responsible for deciding the outcome of the Committees recommendations and all further correspondence should be addressed to The Secretary, The Electoral Commission, Trevelyan House, Great Peter Street, London SW1P 2HW.

 

As part of its final recommendations, the Committee has proposed a retention of the current council size of 33 members.

 

The Committees reports are available on its website at www.boundarycommittee.org.uk or at council offices and at public libraries. Copies of the reports can also be obtained by writing to The Boundary Committee for England, Trevelyan House, Great Peter Street, London  SW1P 2HW.
