The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England has opened a new phase of public consultation in its review of Barnet’s council ward boundaries.
Electoral review of Barnet
The consultation focuses on new proposals for eight wards in Finchley, Golders Green, and Hendon.
Local people have until Tuesday 12 November 2019 to have their say on the proposals before the Commission finalises its recommendations for new wards across the whole borough in January.
In March 2019, the Commission opened a public consultation on proposals for new ward boundaries across Barnet. In response to local feedback on the plans, the Commission has decided to make significant changes to their boundary proposals in Finchley, Golders Green, and Hendon. Due to the extent of the proposed changes, the Commission is holding an extra round of consultation in those areas before it finalises the recommendations.
Professor Colin Mellors, Chair of the Commission, said: “We listened carefully to all the views put to us in the previous consultation and have made significant changes to the original recommendations in southern parts of the borough.
“We are now asking local people to log on to our website to tell us what they think about these proposals before we publish final recommendations for the whole of the Barnet in January.”
The consultation is limited to the Commission’s new proposals in Finchley, Golders Green, and Hendon. Details of the recommendations, including maps of the proposals, are available on the Commission’s website at http://www.lgbce.org.uk/all-reviews/greater-london/greater-london/barnet and at https://consultation.lgbce.org.uk/node/15057.
