The Local Government Boundary Commission (LGBC) for England is asking for our residents’ views on an electoral review of our Council. The Commission is the independent body that draws these boundaries. They have decided that the number of councillors in Guildford should be 48, the same as now. It is reviewing Guildford Borough Council to make sure that each councillor represents the same number of electors, and that ward arrangements help the Council work effectively. It wants to be sure that its proposals reflect community ties and identities. The outcomes of the review will agree new ward boundaries across the council.
Please find attached a press release and posters issued by the LGBC. They would like to hear residents’ views on topics such as:
- Shared leisure facilities (for example, across one or more wards)
- Issues that neighbouring communities face
- Roads, rivers or railways that residents feel create strong boundaries
People can also give their views by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, and by post to:
The Review Officer (Guildford)
PO Box 133
Blyth NE24 9FE
This stage of the consultation closes on Monday 5 April 2021.
