Bristol voters asked to comment on ward boundary rethink

Residents of Bristol are being invited to comment on proposed changes to electoral ward boundaries.

City mayor George Ferguson last year suggested the number of local councillors could drop from 70 to 62.

However, following a review, the Local Government Boundary Commission for England has recommended the number stays the same.

But new boundaries have been drafted to make sure each councillor represents roughly the same number of voters.

Local people and organisations have been given until 16 February to share their thoughts on the proposals.
