Local electoral arrangements for Cheshire East finalised

Local electoral arrangements for Cheshire East finalised

2010-07-12T15:17:30+00:00

The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) has published its final recommendations for new local government electoral arrangements in Cheshire East.

Today’s publication follows months of public consultation and draws boundaries for each ward across the Cheshire East council area. The Commission published its draft recommendations, which provided for a council of 82 members, in November 2009 and today confirms that figure in its final recommendations.

Max Caller, Chair of the Local Government Boundary Commission for England, said: “Our recommendations determine how many councillors will serve on the council. They also decide which wards you vote in. We’re grateful to all the people across East Cheshire who took the time and effort to send us their views because having fair wards, where each councillor represents around the same number of people, is important.”

The proposed new arrangements must now be implemented by Parliament. An Order – the legal document which brings into force the recommendations – will be laid in Parliament in October. Parliament can either accept or reject the recommendations. If accepted, the new electoral arrangements will come into force for the next council elections in May 2011.

Source: Electorate figures are based on information provided by Cheshire East Council.

Note: The ‘variance from average’ column shows by how far, in percentage terms, the number of electors per councillor in each electoral ward varies from the average for the area. The minus symbol (-) denotes a lower than average number of electors. Figures have been rounded to the nearest whole number
