A public consultation on the recommendations, which affect every council ward in Mid Suffolk and all but one in Babergh, closes on April 30.

Professor Colin Mellors, chair of the Local Government Boundary Commission for England, which drew up the proposals, said: “This is the last chance for local people to have their say on ward boundaries for district councillors across Mid Suffolk and Babergh.

“We want to hear evidence from the people who know their area best about the shape of local communities across each district before we finalise our recommendations in August.”

To have your say on the proposal see here for Babergh and here for Mid Suffolk.
