The Boundary Commission is asking Tunbridge Wells borough residents for their views on new warding patterns
Ahead of the 2024 local elections, the Boundary Commission is minded to reduce the number of councillors at TWBC from 48 to 39. And, to ensure a more even councillor/elector ratio than at present, ward boundaries will need to be redrawn. Some wards will disappear; some will get larger - especially in the more rural parts of the borough. The Commission will use local views to help it draw up proposals for new ward boundaries. For example, you may live on the outskirts of a village and feel you strongly want to remain part of that village and not be drawn in to a ward with the nearest town, or you may identify via a residents' association as belonging to a particular town ward. Please take a look at the consultation and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
