A new pattern of wards is being developed for Cheshire East Council.
The Local Government Boundary Commission has decided that the number of councillors in Cheshire East should be 82, the same as now.
The Local Government Boundary Commission wants to hear what residents and organisations think about their local area. A 10-week consultation inviting proposals will run until 1 April 2024.
The Commission is the independent body that draws these boundaries. It is reviewing Cheshire East to make sure councillors represent about the same number of electors, and that ward arrangements help the council work effectively. It wants to be sure that itsproposals reflect community ties and identities.
The Commission is interested in views on which communities should be part of the same ward:
The Commission will use local views to help it draw up proposals for new ward boundaries. There will be a further round of consultation once the Commission has drawn up those proposals.
Launching the consultation, Professor Colin Mellors, chair of the Commission, said:
Just tell us what you think and give us some details why you think that.
