Boundary Commission Consultation (affecting Pitstone) open until 11 December 2017

The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) has been investigating initial proposals regarding new Parliamentary Constituencies.  All of the detail is on the BCE website https://www.bce2018.org.uk

 

Consultation on the revised proposals runs from 17 October 2017 to 11 December 2017.

This includes the following proposals relating to Pitstone:

 3.7 The inclusion of the 2 Borough of Milton Keynes wards in the cross county Constituency has led the BCE to transfer the District of Aylesbury Vale Wards of Edlesborough, Pitstone and Cheddington, Oakfield and Bierton, Watermead, Wing and Wingrave from the Buckingham Constituency to the Aylesbury Constituency.

3.8 The BCE acknowledges that these changes would result in an Aylesbury Constituency that is a slightly unusual shape as it wraps round the edge of the region, but feels that alternative boundaries would not result in a pattern of Constituencies that are within 5% of the electoral quota. 

There are hard copies of the BCE documents on deposit at the Council Offices, The Gateway, Gatehouse Road, Aylesbury.  These documents cannot be removed from the offices.  However, the same documents can be accessed via the BCE website, where you can also submit any comments relating to the proposals.

The consultation will also be discussed at the Pitstone parish council meeting on 30 November 2017 where residents are welcome to attend and put their representations to members during the public session, ahead of the council discussion.
