New 'Neston & Parkgate' Ward Proposed - Have Your Say

Published: 29th August 2017 09:31

The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is asking people across Cheshire West and Chester to comment on its draft proposals for new council ward boundaries.

Proposals include combining most of the Neston area into a single ward, Neston & Parkgate.

Neston & Parkgate ward

A ten-week public consultation on the recommendations begins today, Tuesday 29 August, and will end on 6 November 2017. The consultation is open to anyone who wants to have their say on new council wards, ward boundaries and ward names across Cheshire West and Chester.

The Commission's draft recommendations propose that the Cheshire West and Chester should have 70 councillors in the future, five fewer than the current arrangements. The recommendations also outline how those councillors should represent eight three-councillor wards, eleven two-councillor wards and 24 one-councillor wards across Cheshire West and Chester.

The full recommendations and detailed interactive maps are available on the Commission's website at consultation.lgbce.org.uk and www.lgbce.org.uk. Hard copies of the Commission's report and maps will also be available to view at council buildings.

How does it affect residents in and around Neston?

Currently there are five seats across four wards in the CH64 area (Neston x 1, Parkgate x 1, Little Neston & Burton x 2 and Willaston & Thornton x 1). The draft recommendations propose that Neston and its villages other than Puddington and Willaston will all come under a single ward - Neston & Parkgate, with three councillors to represent it.  Puddington would become part of a new Saughall & Mollington ward with one councillor. Willaston would continue to be represented by one councillor in the Willaston & Thornton ward.

Here is the section of the report regarding the decision on the Neston & Parkgate ward:
