New Borough Boundaries
The Erewash (Electoral Changes) Order 2015 No. 77 has now been published to legislation.gov.uk: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/id/uksi/2015/77
The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England has published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for Erewash Borough Council.
Today’s publication follows a ten-week public consultation on its draft proposals and draws new boundaries for each council ward across the borough.
The Commission’s final recommendations propose that Erewash should be represented by 47 councillors in the future, four fewer than the current arrangements. The recommendations also propose that those councillors should represent ten two-member wards and nine three-member ward across the borough.
The proposed new arrangements must now be implemented by Parliament. A draft order – the legal document which brings into force the recommendations – will be laid in Parliament in the coming months. The draft Order provides for the new electoral arrangements to come into force at the council elections in 2015.
