WMDC Community Governance Review
CREATE-MERGE-ALTER or ABOLISH?
Deadline for your views is 31 January 2022
Wakefield Council’s review aims, amongst other considerations, to create a better balance between the number of people in each Parish entitled to vote & the number of Parish Councilors.
As we have 153 voters, ours is a very low 1:30 ratio, which means that to ‘level up’ we may need to consider these options:
# increase our boundary area up to the railway line in the West and River Went in the South, to align with the Parochial Boundary of EH (would include Hundhill, the Kennels area, inc. Rigg Lane)
# disband EH Parish Council
# allow EH be taken into adjacent Ackworth Parish Council boundary area
All residents are invited to submit their views, after reading the 20 page Review Document (link below).
If you feel the traditions of East Hardwick should be preserved then now is the time to tell Wakefield Council how you think that would be best achieved!
Thank you in advance everyone
