"The Commission has recommended that Croxden Parish Council be placed within the Stramshall and Weaver Ward, with 2 East Staffordshire Borough Councillors attached to that ward. These recommendations will now be laid before Parliament. "
Today we published our final recommendations for future electoral arrangements for East Staffordshire Borough Council.
We are proposing that East Staffordshire Borough Council should have 37 councillors.
Those councillors should represent seven three-councillor wards, seven two-councillor wards and two single-councillor wards, across the borough.
We are also proposing that the boundaries of all wards should change.
We have now completed our electoral review of East Staffordshire.
We are extremely grateful to the people of East Staffordshire who took the time and effort to send us their views.
We considered every piece of evidence we received before finalising our recommendations.
As a result of our recommendations for new warding patterns, we are making changes to the parish electoral arrangements for the following parish and town councils:
- Outwoods Parish Council
- Shobnall Parish Council
- Stapenhill Parish Council
- Uttoxeter Town Council
- Winshill Parish Council
The changes we have proposed must now be approved by Parliament.
A draft Order - the legal document which brings into force our recommendations - will now be laid before Parliament.
The draft Order will provide for new electoral arrangements for East Staffordshire Borough Council to be implemented at the local elections in 2023.
