The Oban Times - - News -

THE FORMER MP for Ar­gyll and Bute has told the bound­aries com­mis­sioner to ‘re­verse its de­ci­sion’ and needs to ‘tear up its plans’ for changes to coun­cil wards.

Alan Reid, who is now the Lib­eral Demo­crat can­di­date for Ar­gyll and Bute, slammed the ward bound­ary pro­pos­als for Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil as ‘the most ridicu­lous he has ever seen’ in a sub­mis­sion to the Bound­ary Com­mis­sion.

Mr Reid said: ‘ Th­ese ward bound­ary pro­pos­als are the most ridicu­lous I have ever seen. The Bound­ary Com­mis­sion must tear them up and start again from scratch.

In his sub­mis­sion to the Bound­ary Com­mis­sion he said: ‘I ob­jected last year to the cut in coun­cil­lors from 36 to 33.

‘The only so­lu­tion is to re­verse last year’s bad de­ci­sion to re­duce ward num­bers and start again with 36 coun­cil­lors.’
