Have your say on a new political map for Bedford Borough Council

The Local Government Boundary Commission wants to hear what residents and local organisations think about the proposals. A 10-week consultation on the proposals will run until 7 December 2020.

The Commission is the independent body that draws these boundaries. It is reviewing Bedford Borough Council to make sure councillors will represent about the same number of electors, and that ward arrangements will help the council work effectively.

The Commission has published proposals for changes to Bedford Borough Council. It is proposing that there should be 46 councillors in future, six more than now. The number of wards will increase from 27 to 29.
