Rushcliffe Borough Council to reduce number of councillors by six
RUSHCLIFFE Borough Council looks set to reduce the number of councillors from 50 to 44.
The local Government Boundary Commission for England has published its final recommendations for the area to balance the number of councillors across the borough.
Max Caller, Chair of the Commission, said: "We are extremely grateful to the people of Rushcliffe who took the time and effort to send us their views. The Commission considered every piece of evidence it received before finalising these recommendations.
"Across the borough, we have sought to balance the views expressed to us by local people with the criteria we must apply when we are deciding on new electoral arrangements. As such, we believe these recommendations deliver electoral equality for voters as well as reflecting the interests of communities across Rushcliffe."
