Final chance to have your say on a new political map for Malvern Hills District Council
New boundaries are being proposed for council wards in Malvern Hills District Council.
The Local Government Boundary Commission wants to hear what residents and local organisations think about the new proposals. A final 6-week consultation on the proposals will run until 8 August 2022. This follows two previous periods of consultation.
The Commission is the independent body that draws these boundaries. It is reviewing Malvern Hills to make sure councillors will represent about the same number of electors, and that ward arrangements will help the council work effectively.
The Commission has published proposals for changes to Malvern Hills. It is proposing that there should be 31 councillors, seven fewer than at present.
They should represent residents across 15 wards.
There will be four three-councillor wards, eight two-councillor and three single-councillor wards across the district.
Launching the consultation Professor Colin Mellors, Chair of the Commission, said: "We want people in Malvern Hills to help us.
"We have drawn up final proposals for new wards in Malvern Hills. We want to make sure these new electoral arrangements reflect communities. We also want them to be easy to understand and convenient for local people. Residents and local organisations have already helped us in refining our earlier proposals. Now we would like them to let us know whether they agree with our proposals before we take final decisions.
"It's easy to get involved. Go to our website. Or you can e-mail or write to us. Just tell us what you think and give us some details why you think that. It's really simple, so do get involved"
The Commission has a dedicated section on its website where people can see the detail of the proposals and comment on the names of wards, their boundaries and the number of councillors per ward. Visit the Local Government Boundary Commission website.
