Residents are being encouraged to engage in a consultation to redraw a new political map for North Kesteven.
The Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) wants to hear what residents and local organisations think about the proposals it has put forward in a bid to ensure the Council’s 43 councillors represent a roughly equal number of electors, with Ward arrangements which help the Council work effectively.
These detailed proposals can be found on the Commission’s website. There is a dedicated section where people can see the detail of the proposals for North Kesteven and comment on the names of wards, their boundaries and the number of councillors per ward.
More information is also available on the North Kesteven page of the LGBCE website.
Also you can see the boundaries and interactive map on the NK consultation page.
The 10-week consultation on the proposals will run until 19 October 2020.
It is important to note that this is the Boundary Commission’s review, not the Council’s, with all stages carried out by the commission within its timescales.
The Council has the opportunity to formally respond as a consultee, which it will be doing through a Council meeting in October.
In the meantime people are encouraged to view the proposals, get involved, have their say and respond directly to the Boundary Commission with any views before October 19.
