PEOPLE across Hillingdon are being asked to comment on draft proposals for new council ward boundaries.

The Local Government Boundary Commission’s plans would mean changes to all but two wards in the borough.

 A 10-week consultation begins today. It is proposed that Hillingdon should have 53 councillors in future, 12 fewer than now.

There would be 12 three-councillor wards, eight two-councillor wards, and one single-councillor ward.

Prof Colin Mellors, chair of the independent Commission, said: “Our review aims to deliver electoral equality.

"This means that each councillor represents a similar number of people, so that everyone’s vote is worth roughly the same, regardless of where you live.

“We also want to ensure our proposals reflect the interests and identities of local communities across Hillingdon.”
