The Local Government Boundary Commission for England have opened an additional phase of public consultation in our review of Malvern Hills District’s electoral arrangements in respect of wards including Abberley.
The consultation will close on 8 August 2022.
The consultation focuses on new proposals for council ward boundaries across the district.
They are not seeking further comment in respect of any other part of the district.
They previously held a public consultation on their draft recommendations for new ward boundaries across Malvern Hills. Local Government Boundary Commission for England listened to the views put to them during the consultation and propose to make changes to the plans to reflect the local evidence received.
Due to the significance of the proposed changes made, they are opening an extra phase of consultation, to see what you think of the new recommendations.
Further information in relation to these changes can be found by viewing their letter to the Chief Executive of Malvern Hills District Council, found below.
This period of consultation starts today, 28 June 2022, and closes on 8 August 2022.
During this period, they welcome comments and supporting evidence on their further draft recommendations for Malvern Hills.
They will publish our final recommendations for the district on 16 September 2022.
Abberley Parish Council supports this latest proposal because The Boundaries Commission has taken into account the historical and natural close ties we have with our neighbouring parishes and as such our needs will continue to be ably represented.
Therefore we would ask parishioners to support this proposal using the links given.
