Have a say on new ward boundaries
The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is asking people across the Breckland district to comment on its draft proposals for new Breckland Council ward boundaries.
A twelve-week public consultation on the recommendations began in January and will end on Monday 14 April. The consultation is open to anyone who wants to have their say on new council wards, ward boundaries and ward names across the district.
The Commissions draft recommendations propose that Breckland District Council should in future have 49 councillors, five fewer than the current arrangements.
Our present ward is "The Buckenhams" which includes both Old and New Buckenham. The Commission’s recommendation is to add Banham to the ward and name it "The Buckenhams and Banham".
The full recommendations and detailed interactive maps are available on the Commission’s website www.lgbce.org.uk
