Views sought for new West Suffolk Council ward boundaries

People are being invited to help shape options on what the ward boundaries for the new West Suffolk Council should look like.
The Government has backed plans to replace Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council with a single authority and the order is due in parliament later this month.
New wards for West Suffolk Council would have to be created as the suggested number of councillors should reduce, in line with guidance, from 72 to 64.
Even if a single authority was not being created both councils were due to have their wards reviewed.
People can view the maps of the suggested wards and help to shape the options that both councils will put in front of members and eventually send to the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) by visiting www.westsuffolk.gov.uk/wardoptions
