Boundary Commission Revised Proposals – Comments needed by 11th January 2021

GOOD NEWS

After an amazing response by Parishioners, the Boundary Commission have agreed to look again at the proposal to join our Parish with Branston for

representation on ESBC.

They have recognised that our links with Barton are much stronger than those with Branston.

So what next?   After looking at several options, the Commission has come to the conclusion that the best solution is to create a new larger ward of

Bagot’s and Needwood.  This would cover our

Parishes, Dunstall, Barton, Yoxall and Abbots

Bromley with 3 Borough Councillors.

To those of you who commented on the original  proposals – a huge Thank You.   If you commented you should have received an email giving full

details of the revised proposals – please look at them and send in your thoughts on these revisions.  The Parish Council feel this is our best option for representation for us at the Borough Council.

If you did not originally make any comments and would like to look at the proposals these can be found at www.consultation.lgbce.org.uk and look at the Further Draft Recommendations Report.  Comments can be made via this website.  Full details are also on the ESBC web site.  If you do not have access to the internet please contact a Parish

Councillor, who will be only too pleased to make sure you get all the information you need.

Comments on the new proposals are needed by

11th January 2021 – as has been shown the more

comments the better!
