Have your say on the new political map for Mid Sussex District Council

The Local Government Boundary Commission wants to hear what residents and local organisations think about the proposed new ward boundaries for Mid Sussex District Council. A 10-week consultation on the proposals will run until 8 November 2021.

The Commission is the independent body that draws these boundaries. It is reviewing Mid Sussex 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 Mid Sussex. It is proposing that there should be 25 wards with five one-councillor wards, 17 two-councillor wards, and three three-councillor wards. 23 wards will have their boundaries changes, with three wards (Burgess Hill Franklands, Burgess Hill St Andrews and Copthorne) remaining the same.

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, their boundaries, and the number of councillors per ward: https://consultation.lgbce.org.uk/node/25848

People can also give their views by e-mail at reviews@lgbce.org.uk, and by post:

Review Officer (Mid Sussex), LGBCE, PO Box 133, Blyth NE24 9FE
