Have your say on new political map of Brent

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

The Commission’s plans mean changes to ward boundaries across the borough. Only the current Kilburn ward would stay the same under the draft recommendations.

A 10-week public consultation on the recommendations begins today and will end on 15 April 2019. The consultation is open to anyone who wants to have their say on new council wards, ward boundaries and ward names across Brent.

The Commission’s draft recommendations propose that Brent should have 57 councillors in future: this is six less than now. The recommendations also outline how those councillors should represent 13 three-councillor wards, and nine two-councillor wards.

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.

The Commission wants to hear as much evidence as possible to develop final recommendations for Brent. If you would like to make a submission to the Commission, please write or email us by 15 April 2019.
