Consultation on ward boundaries for Amber Valley Borough Council
The Local Government Boundary Commission is carrying out an electoral review of Amber Valley Borough Council.
It has launched a consultation on proposals relating to the representation of the different wards in the borough. This consultation seeks the views of interested parties regarding the following areas:
- The total number of councillors
- The number of wards
- The number of councillors per ward
- Ward boundaries
- The names of the wards
There is a consideration to reduce the total number of councillors from 45 to 42. In any rearrangement, each councillor should represent approximately the same number of electors. The wards should as far as possible reflect the interests and identities of local communities and the arrangements should provide for effective and convenient local government.
The consultation is open until 3rd May and draft recommendations will be published in August. There will then be a period of further consultation, with final recommendations being published in January 2022. Any new electoral arrangements will come become effective from the May 2023 local government elections.
