The consultation is the first part of an electoral review which will re-draw ward boundaries across the borough.

The Commission has also announced that the borough should have 54 councillors in future: six fewer than the current arrangements. The Commission now needs information from people and groups across Basingstoke and Deane to help it to produce a new pattern of wards to accommodate 54 councillors.

In drawing up new boundaries, the Commission aims to deliver electoral equality for voters in council elections so that each councillor represents roughly the same number of voters. The review also aims to ensure that the new council wards reflect, as far as possible, the interests and identities of communities across Basingstoke and Deane.

Local people have until 12 February 2018 to submit their views. Further information on the review and interactive maps of the existing wards can be found at consultation.lgbce.org.uk and www.lgbce.org.uk and at http://www.lgbce.org.uk/current-reviews/south-east/hampshire/basingstoke-and-deane 

How to respond to the consultation is set out at: https://consultation.lgbce.org.uk/node/11062
