Your help needed to draw up new wards in East Devon
- Credit: Archant
Residents are being asked for their help to draw up a new pattern of council wards for East Devon District Council.
The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is conducting an electoral review that will re-draw boundaries across the district.
It is also ‘minded’ to recommend that the number of councillors increases by one to 60.
The commission aims to deliver electoral equality for voters in council elections so that each councillor represents roughly the same number of voters.
The review also aims to ensure that the new council wards reflect, as far as possible, the interests and identities of communities across East Devon.

Residents can have their say at www.consultation.lgbce.org.uk before Monday, December 5.
There will be another chance to comment when the commission publishes its draft recommendations in February 2017.
