21st March 2023 - Boundary Commission

Bygrave Parish Council have been advised of the proposed ward changes put forward by the Boundary Commission and wonder why the Parish Council were not advised of these proposals directly

We agree wholeheartedly with North Herts District Council proposals.

To include the current wards with that of the Baldock East and the new Baldock expansion is not at all satisfactory. The needs of rural communities are totally different to towns including town expansion.

It seems to Bygrave Parish Council that it would seem far more sensible to leave Arbury Ward, which serves Bygrave, as it is with a District Councillor understanding the specific issues of the locality and to allocate an extra councillor to serve Baldock East incorporating the new Baldock expansion.
