the consultation, local people argued in favour of keeping the parish wholly within the Cayton ward.
The commission now proposes that the whole of the parish of Osgodby should be part of Cayton ward.
Elsewhere in Scarborough, the commission has made minor changes to its proposed ward boundaries and ward names to reflect community views.
When the review was originally proposed last year it was thought that Scarborough could lose 10 of its councillors, a reduction of 20%.
This figure was then revised to 45, before the commission settled on the final figure of 46. Neighbouring Harrogate Council proposed to reduce its numbers from 45 to 40, which the commission approved.
In Scarborough some respondents argued that the number of councillors should increase. The commission’s report noted: “We received three submissions about the number of councillors. All three respondents expressed objections to the reduction in the number of councillors. One preferred that the number of councillors should stay at 50. The other respondents preferred more councillors but did not propose an actual number.”
