27 Nov Political map of Enfield set to change
The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is asking local people for their help to draw up a new pattern of council wards for Enfield Council. The consultation is the first part of an electoral review which will re-draw ward boundaries across the council. The Commission has also announced that Enfield should have 63 councillors in future: no change from the current arrangements.
In drawing up new boundaries, the Commission aims to deliver electoral equality for voters in council elections so that each councillor represents roughly the same number of voters. The review also aims to ensure that the new council wards reflect, as far as possible, the interests and identities of communities across Enfield.
Local people have until 4 February 2019 to submit their views in this consultation. Further information on the review and interactive maps of the existing wards can be found at consultation.lgbce.org.ukand www.lgbce.org.uk.
