Feedback wanted on proposed Walsall boundary changes

The Local Government Boundary Commission is embarking on a mission to redefine council wards in Walsall, and they want your input. A comprehensive 10-week consultation on these proposals is now underway and will continue until April 8, 2024.

The objective of the commission is to ensure equitable representation of electors by redistributing the wards effectively. The Commission has put forth proposals for Walsall, advocating for the establishment of 20 three-councillor wards, heralding a significant shift in the ward landscape.

Notable changes include:

  • The renaming of Willenhall North ward to New Invention based on local input.
  • A substantial redesign of wards in Walsall town centre.

“ We want people in Walsall to help us,” said Professor Colin Mellors, Chair of the Commission.

“We have drawn up proposals for new wards in Walsall. We want to make sure these new electoral arrangements reflect communities.

“We also want them to be easy to understand and convenient for local people. Residents and local organisations can help us do that. We would like them to let us know whether they agree with our proposals before we take final decisions. It’s easy to get involved. Go to our website. Or you can e-mail or write to us.

“Just tell us what you think and give us some details why you think that. It’s really simple, so do get involved.”

The Commission has dedicated a section on its website where you can delve into the proposal details and offer feedback on ward names and boundaries:

Additionally, a high-resolution map is available on the Local Government Boundary Commission website.
