The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is carrying out an electoral review which will draw new boundaries for wards and electoral divisions represented by every district, borough and county councillor across East Sussex, the Hastings borough being one of them.

In this phase of consultation, the commission is asking people where they think new ward and division boundaries should be drawn.

Hastings borough councillors will be discussing proposed changes to ward boundaries this evening (Monday, November 16) from 5pm.

Their Rother District Council counterparts are also holding a similar meeting tonight at 6.30pm.

Max Caller CBE, chairman of the commission, said: “Local people know their area best. That is why we are asking for views about the shape of communities and the recognisable boundaries between areas. We will use that information to draw up draft proposals for new boundaries which we will put out for public consultation next year.

“Don’t miss this chance to have your say on how your council is run.”

This phase of public consultation closes on November 30.
