Anglesey councillor numbers could be cut

The number of councillors in Anglesey could be cut by a quarter, from 40 to 30, if recommendations from the Local Government Boundary Commission for Wales are accepted.

The council could also be split into 11 new multi-member electoral divisions. Eight would be represented by three councillors and the other three by two, according to the new plans.

The draft proposals are currently out for consultation until January 2012. The local authority is currently being run by commissioners appointed by the Welsh Government.

The Boundary Commission’s interim chief executive, Richard Parry Jones, said: “These proposals, if accepted, would represent both a significant geographical and cultural change for the electors of Ynys Môn.

“I must emphasise this is a consultative process and an opportunity for you to influence the island's future governance and so it is important that all interested parties have their say.”

Council elections for Anglesey may be delayed by up to a year.

25/10/2017Take a moment to celebrate

Devolution, restructuring and widespread service reform: from a journalist’s perspective, it’s never been a more exciting time to report on the public sector. That’s why I could not be more thrilled to be taking over the reins at PSE at this key juncture. There could not be a feature that more perfectly encapsulates this feeling of imminent change than the article James Palmer, mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, has penned for us on p28.
