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.”
