Boundary Commission consultation on Haringey’s council wards
The Local Government Boundary Commission for England is inviting residents to have their say on Haringey’s political map.
The Commission has been working on redrawing the ward boundaries in Haringey to ensure that each ward has roughly the same number of people and all votes have the same value.
The Commission has now published its draft proposals and is seeking feedback from local residents.
Under the Commission’s proposals, Haringey would still have 19 wards and 57 councillors, with 3 elected members representing each ward. However, the boundaries of all wards would change.
A 10-week consultation process has begun on the proposals and residents are encouraged to send their views to the Commission – the consultation period closes on 5 August 2019. The Commission will consider all submissions and aims to publish its final recommendations in December 2019. The Commission is particularly interested in views on the proposed ward names and whether the suggested new wards accurately reflect local communities.
The full recommendations are available on the Commission’s website at consultation.lgbce.org.uk and www.lgbce.org.uk, along with detailed interactive maps. Paper copies of the maps and the Commission’s report will be available for the public to view at council buildings.
More details of the proposals and information on how to give feedback can be found at www.lgbce.org.uk/media/media-resources/greater-london/draft-recommendations-for-haringey-council.
