The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is asking people across Barnet to comment on its draft proposals for new council ward boundaries.
The Commission’s plans would mean changes to all ward boundaries in Barnet.
A ten-week public consultation on the recommendations begins today and will end on 13 May 2019. The consultation is open to anyone who wants to have their say on new council wards, ward boundaries and ward names across Barnet.
The Commission’s draft recommendations propose that Barnet should have 63 councillors in future: this is no change from now. The recommendations also outline how those councillors should represent 14 three-councillor wards, ten two-councillor wards and one one-councillor ward across the borough.
The full recommendations and detailed interactive maps are available on the Commission’s website at consultation.lgbce.org.uk and www.lgbce.org.uk. Hard copies of the Commission’s report and maps will also be available to view at council buildings.
The Commission wants to hear as much evidence as possible to develop final recommendations for Barnet. If you would like to make a submission to the Commission, please write or email us by 13 May 2019.
