Warwickshire county councillor reform put to voters

People in Warwickshire are being asked what they think of plans to cut the number of county councillors.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England is proposing to reduce the number from 62 to 57.

The divisional boundaries would be redrawn so each county councillor represents a similar number of voters.

Marcus Bowell, from the commission, said: "The best reviews are those where people have a say - it's really important to the democratic process."

The commission is encouraging people to give feedback on their proposals via their website.

Mr Bowell said the changes would leave Warwickshire with a similar number of councillors to other local authorities of roughly the same size.

Worcestershire and Northamptonshire both have 57 councillors.
