Residents reminded to have their say on political boundaries

Residents are reminded to have their say on a review of electoral ward boundaries across the borough.

The Local Government Boundary Commission, the independent body which draws these boundaries, is carrying out a consultation and is asking for people’s comments.

The commission is recommending there continues to be 72 ward councillors in the borough, but is reviewing where the ward boundaries should be drawn.

Its review aims to make sure councillors represent about the same number of electors as well as ensure its proposals reflect community ties and identities.

The consultation closes on March 15 and, after considering responses, the commission will publish draft recommendations in May. There will then be a further period of consultation before final recommendations are published in October.

The new electoral arrangements will come into effect at the local elections in May 2024. Kevin O’Keefe, chief executive at Dudley Council said:

“The commission is currently reviewing the ward boundaries in Dudley and wants to hear residents’ views.

“I’d encourage people to visit the commission’s website to find out more and get involved.”
