An update from the Chief Executive of the Boundary Commission in relation to the Wrexham changes.
See previous post about the Rossett/Burton village meeting to discuss the implications of the changes to the boundary.
The Boundary Commission has decided to suspend its consultation in relation to its draft proposals for the future electoral arrangements for the County Borough of Wrexham.
The Commission published its draft proposals on 7 January 2020. The 12-week consultation period in relation to the draft proposals commenced on 14 January 2020 and was due to close on 6 April 2020.
The Commission was made aware that Wrexham County Borough Council was focusing its resources on the emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic and it was unable to respond the Commission’s draft report. The Council requested that the Commission take steps to enable the Council to respond once its normal operations were restored.
In the light of this request and the potential difficulties for other consultees due to the current pandemic, the Commission suspended the consultation in relation to its Wrexham draft proposals.
The Commission will re-start this consultation on 1 July 2020 and will close on 13 July 2020.
