Cambridge residents will have their say on proposals for new ward boundaries that could see them dealing with new local councillors.

Under new recommendations the city’s largest wards, Trumpington and Castle, may shrink leaving people technically living in a different part of the city.

The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is asking people across Cambridge to comment on its draft proposals for new council ward boundaries before the deadline of December 10, 2018.

Professor Colin Mellors, chair of the commission, said: “We are publishing proposals for a new pattern of wards across Cambridge and we are keen to hear what local people think of the recommendations.

“Our review aims to deliver electoral equality for local voters. This means that each councillor represents a similar number of people, so that everyone’s vote in council elections is worth roughly the same, regardless of where you live.”
