The independent Local Government Boundary Commission has today published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for Aylesbury Vale District Council.

Today's publication follows a 3 month public consultation on its draft proposals and draws new boundaries for each council ward across the district.

The Commission's final recommendations propose that Aylesbury Vale should be represented by 59 councillors in the future, the same as the current arrangements.

Max Caller, Chair of the Commission, said, "Across the district, 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 identities of communities across the district."

In its final recommendations, and in response to views submitted during consultation, the Commission proposes to alter some of the recommendations it put forward for consultation. For example, in response to local feedback, the Commission now recommends that the areas of Wendover and Halton should be included in the same ward. They had been divided between wards as part of the draft recommendations.

In addition, the Commission proposes that the ward, originally called Newton Longville in the draft recommendations, should be named Great Brickhill & Newton Longville to reflect local community identities.

Elsewhere, the Commission confirms its draft recommendations for new ward boundaries and ward names as final."

The proposed new arrangements must now be implemented by Parliament before 2015.
