Have your say on a new political map for Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council

Proposed ward boundaries in Calderdale

News Release from the Local Government Boundary Commission for England

New boundaries are being proposed for council wards in Calderdale.

The Local Government Boundary Commission wants to hear what residents and local organisations think about the proposals. A 12 week consultation on the proposals will run until 22 January 2024.

The Commission is the independent body that draws these boundaries. It is reviewing Calderdale to make sure councillors will represent about the same number of electors, and that ward arrangements will help the council work effectively.

The Commission has published proposals for changes to Calderdale. It is proposing that there should be 18 three-councillor wards.

Proposed changes include:

• Ward changes in the Halifax, Elland and Stainland areas

Launching the consultation Professor Colin Mellors, Chair of the Commission, said:

“We want people in Calderdale to help us. We have drawn up proposals for new wards in Calderdale. We want to make sure these new electoral arrangements reflect communities. We also want them to be easy to understand and convenient for local people.

“Residents and local organisations can help us do that. We would like them to let us know whether they agree with our proposals before we take final decisions.

“It’s easy to get involved. Go to our website. Or you can e-mail or write to us. Just tell us what you think and give us some details why you think that. It’s really simple, so do get involved.”

The Commission has a dedicated section on its website where people can see the detail of the proposals and comment on the names of wards and their boundaries: link)
