City plan to move bound­aries

Stirling Times - - News -

COUN­CIL ward bound­aries in the City of Stir­ling are be­ing re­viewed to fix an im­bal­ance.

Ratepay­ers can have their say on how the wards should change to ad­dress im­bal­ances in the ra­tio of vot­ers to coun­cil­lors in two wards. Dou­ble­view ward vot­ers are un­der-rep­re­sented and Hamer­s­ley ward vot­ers are over-rep­re­sented un­der the bound­aries.

The City has cre­ated four op­tions: one that re­aligns the Dou­ble­view and Hamer­s­ley bound­aries; an­other that would change the Coastal, Dou­ble­view and Hamer­s­ley ward ar­eas; one to re­align Coastal, Dou­ble­view, Os­borne and Hamer­s­ley; or a fourth op­tion to re­duce the num­ber of wards from seven to four.
