Boundary changes: Gedling constituency will still go under revised plans

Bookmark

The Gedling constituency will still disappear according to revised plans over voting boundary changes released today.

The Boundary Commissions for England has made changes to the plans originally issued earlier in the year, but the Gedling constituency will still disappear if revised proposals go ahead.

Carlton and Netherfield, which are currently part of the Gedling constituency, would instead be included in an expanded Nottingham East and Carlton constituency.

Arnold would be moved over from the scrapped Gedling constituency and become part of a Sherwood constituency.

Sam Hartley, secretary to the Boundary Commission for England, has now urged the public to have their say again on the revised plans before it was submitted to Parliament for its approval next September.

“Based on what people have said to us, we have revised more than half of our initial proposals,” he said.

“The new map of the country we publish today is, we think, close to the best set of Parliamentary constituencies we can achieve, based on the rules to which we work and the evidence given to us by citizens.”

The latest boundary plans are now subject to an eight-week consultation, which ends on December 11.

  1. It might mean that where I live actually gets some support with drugs and antisocial behaviour, land ownership rather than wanting to sell our only community facility and slap as many additional properties on an estate that is already saturated. The border runs right through the estate and we already get more support from the city on issues on their half. Don’t get me wrong 2 out of 3 of our councillors are great but that is not enough. I’ve lived here all my life but over the last few years the estate has suffered.
