Warwick District Council is conducting a review of the Community Governance arrangements of three specific areas within the district and is inviting local people to have their say.

The Council’s aim is to ensure that the Parish and Town Councils in the district reflect the identities and interests of the communities they serve and that local people are able to identify clearly the parish or ward in which they are resident. It also wants to make sure that as far as practicable the electoral area boundaries at all levels of local government are on clearly defined boundaries.

Following requests from the Parish and Town councils, Warwick District Council has agreed to consider the following proposals and is seeking the views of local people;

  1. to amend the boundary between Royal Leamington Spa Town Council and Whitnash Town Council so that instead of passing through the site of Campion School, it runs along the identifiable boundary of the school site;
  2. to subdivide the Kenilworth Town Council wards of St John’s and Park Hill into four wards named, St John’s (4 Councillors), Borrowell (3 Councillors), Park Hill (4 Councillors) and Dalehouse (4 Councillors). There would be no amendment to the proposed Town Council ward for Abbey (2 Councillors); and
  3. to increase the size of Norton Lindsey Parish Council from 5 Councillors to 7 Councillors

The Vice-Chairman of Warwick District Council’s Licensing and Regulatory Committee Councillor Neale Murphy commented;

“Parish & Town Council’s play a key role within our local communities and it is important they are representative of their communities. This consultation provides an opportunity for residents to have their say on future electoral arrangements and therefore I would strongly encourage the residents from Kenilworth, Norton Lindsey, Royal Leamington Spa and Whitnash who are directly affected by these proposals to look at them and respond to the consultation.”

The terms of reference for the review have been published and a copy can be obtained by; visiting the District Council website at www.warwickdc.gov.uk/cgr, email to graham.leach@warwickdc.gov.uk, in person at the Council’s Riverside House offices or telephone (01926) 456114.

The public are invited to send their views in writing to Graham Leach Democratic Services Manager & Deputy Monitoring Officer, Warwick District Council, Riverside House, Milverton Hill, Royal Leamington Spa CV32 5HZ or by email to graham.leach@warwickdc.gov.uk by 12 noon on Friday 21 September 2018.
