HAMPSHIRE BOUNDARY CONSULTATION CONTINUES

The controversial consultation on the proposed shake up of County Council divisions in Hampshire is set to continue until August.

The results of the consultation were expected to be released today but decisions on division boundaries in the New Forest and Havant have been delayed to allow for longer consultation. This extended consultation will open on the 10th May and close on the 6th June 2016.

The new recommendations for Havant and the New Forest will be published on the Boundary Commission’s website (www.lgbce.org.uk) for public comment and complaint. 

Upon the consultation’s closing, the Commission will draw up its final recommendations for the entire county area and publish them on 16th August 2016. The new boundaries will come into effect at the county council elections in 2017.
