Sutton residents are being asked to help draw up new boundaries for Council wards in the borough.

The consultation is the first part of an electoral review with the aims of ensuring that each councillor represents roughly the same number of voters, and that the wards reflect, as far as possible, the interests and identities of communities across Sutton.

The Commission has also announced that Sutton should have 54 councillors in future; no change from the current arrangements.

Professor Colin Mellors, Chair of the Commission, said: “We are asking local people and organisations to help us draw up new wards for Sutton.

"As we develop the recommendations, we will take into account local community identities as well as ensuring electoral equality for voters.

“If you have a view about which communities or neighbourhoods should be part of the same council ward, then we want to hear from you.

"And if you think a road, river or railway makes for a strong boundary between communities in your part of Sutton, then this consultation is for you.

“If you’re interested in the way the council is run, just log on to our website to explore our interactive maps and have your say.

“Your views will make a difference.

“We will carefully consider all evidence that is provided during this phase of the review, whoever it is from and whether it applies to the whole of Sutton or just a small part of the borough.

“Residents will then have a further chance to have their say after we publish our draft recommendations in January 2020”.

Local people have until September 30 to submit their views.
