Ward Boundary Changes - Further Consultation

The final proposals for changes to Hackney electoral ward boundaries have been published by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE).

The LGBCE have also announced that residents will now have an extra chance to comment on the proposals.

In short it is proposed that De Beauvoir will become a two-councillor ward which will cover the area from Balls Pond Road down to the canal, bounded by Southgate Road to the west and Kingsland Road to the east.
This will mean that the current area of De Beauvoir ward to the south of the canal will become part of the new Hoxton East and Shoreditch ward.

Full details on these changes including updated maps are available on the LGBCE website.

Residents are invited to comment on these proposed changes.
You can have your say on the LGBCE online submissions form, via email, or by post to:
The Review Officer (Hackney)
Local Government Boundary Commission for England
Layden House
76-86 Turnmill House

The consultation closes on the 19th of February 2013.
