  • Women Driving Political Change

Saturday, 4 June 2016

The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England has published new proposals for council ward boundaries across Birmingham.

Conservative women in Birmingham campaigned today to canvass views and inform the public in Quinton on the proposed changes. The six-week public consultation on the recommendations came out in early May, and ends on 20 June 2016. 

The consultation is an opportunity for residents of Birmingham to have their say on the new council wards, ward boundaries and ward names across Birmingham.

According to the Local Government Boundary Commission, “the Commission’s new recommendations proposed that Birmingham City Council should have 101 city councillors in the future, nineteen fewer than the current arrangements.”

The recommendations also outline how those councillors should represent 41 single-member wards and 30 two-member wards across the city.

The Commission will consider all submissions received during this consultation before final recommendations are outlined in September.

Residents have already submitted information on the following wards and changes have been reflected to the current proposals: Moseley, Hall Green, Edgbaston, Acocks Green, Erdington and Sutton Coldfield.
