South Staffordshire residents: have your say on new council ward boundaries
Released on 25 May 2021
The independent Local Government Boundary Commission are asking local people and organisations for their help to draw up new ward boundaries across South Staffordshire District Council.
The Commission has announced that it is minded to recommend that the council should have 41 councillors in the future.
They are now drawing up a new pattern of wards to accommodate 41 councillors. Your help is needed to inform where the new boundaries should be drawn.
The Commission is interested in views on which communities should be part of the same ward. What facilities do people share, such as parks, leisure centres or schools and shopping areas? What issues do neighbouring communities face that they have in common, such as high numbers of visitors or heavy traffic? Have there been new housing or commercial developments that have changed the focus of communities? And are there roads, rivers, railways or other features that people believe form strong boundaries between neighbourhoods?
The Commission will use local views to help it draw up proposals for new ward boundaries. There will be a further round of consultation once the Commission has drawn up those proposals.
Or by post:

This stage of the consultation closes on 02 August 2021.
