Council puts forward proposals for 87 electoral divisions to be implemented at 2021 elections
In December 2015, the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) announced that it would be reviewing the size of Cornwall Council with a view to implementing a change prior to the 2017 elections. After consultation with the Council, it was agreed that the implementation date of any change would be the 2021 elections.
In the summer of 2017, the LGBCE announced that the size of the Council would be 87 councillors, a significant reduction from the current number of 123. Since then, the Council has been working on the geography of the boundaries between each division across Cornwall.
At the Full Council meeting of 20 February, a first draft of all the boundaries of the divisions was agreed as the basis of the submission to the LGBCE. The Commission will consider the proposals, consult on them and, in due course, will make its determination on the final scheme.
In this area, the new divisions, if accepted, will see Probus combine with Ladock, St Erme and part of St Clement parishes to form a new division; Tregony and Cuby will combine with parishes in the Roseland and with Gorran to form a new division; Grampound with Creed with combine with St Mewan, St Ewe and part of Pentewan Valley parishes to form a new division.
