Time running out on Breckland change

Have your say

Time is running out for people to tell the independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England what they think of proposals for new council ward boundaries across Breckland.

The public consultation closes on April 14.

The Commission’s draft recommendations propose that Breckland District Council should have 49 councillors in the future, five fewer than the current arrangements. The proposals mean those councillors would represent nine single-member, 14 two-member and four three-member wards across the district.

The purpose is to make sure ward boundaries across Breckland reflect the identities and interests of local communities as well as delivering electoral fairness for voters.

People can have their say directly by visiting consultation.lgbce.org.uk.

The full recommendations and detailed maps are also available on the Commission’s main website at www.lgbce.org.uk/all-reviews/eastern/norfolk/breckland-fer.
