Electoral Review (26 Jan - 5 April)

St Martha Parish Council

The Local Government Boundary Commission (LGBC) for England is asking for residents’ views on an electoral review of Guildford Borough 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
