News of these came out today in response to a need to reduce the number of councillors on B&NES by 10%. The accompanying summaries do not give much detail, so I’ve created what I think is a correct representation of the changes from now (blue) to the future next year (red) and worked out the gains (pink) and the losses (green). I’ll leave others (our councillors, maybe) to comment here on the blog as to the virtues or otherwise of the changes.
From a CRA perspective there is possibly an advantage in seeing virtually all of what we call Camden in one ward now, but it does leave the iconic Camden Crescent outside the rest of Camden. Hasn’t Lansdown got enough crescents?!
