Discuss ward change proposals

Residents in East Lindsey are being urged to have their say on new council ward boundaries.

The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is currently consulting local people on its draft proposals for new ward boundaries.

The consultation closes on August, 5, 2013. The commission’s draft recommendations propose that East Lindsey District Council should have 55 councillors in the future, five fewer than the current arrangements. The proposals mean those councillors would represent 19 single-member, 12 two-member and four three-member wards across the district.
