See document The Abolition of Alexandra Ward – why it is proposed by the Local Government Boundary Commission, and ways of responding for more information, and for mini-ward maps of the various proposals. Here is a link to APN's alternative ward map in pdf format, which is based on Alexandra and Muswell Hill wards having only 2 councillors each (they would not be large enough to support having 3 councillors - see document above). The Lib Dem's will be available soon ...
We suggest submitting one of these alternative maps (or indeed, simply referring to the 'Alexandra Park Neighbours map' in your comments without even uploading the map - this seems to be acceptable, as I have been assured by the Commission), and giving your own reasons for rejecting the Commission's proposals, and favouring this one (further info and reasoning are in the document above). btw the LGBC have to do something about reordering ward boundaries, so we cannot simply say that we do not want their proposal.
Deadline for feedback is 5 August.
- Download the relevant map above (or just mention it in your comments). Alternatively, here it is in a Word document (the map is at the bottom of the first page - write above it and continue on the next page if required).
- Go to the Commission website at: https://consultation.lgbce.org.uk/node/15479 and click on 'Have your Say'.
- Upload the map if desired (you can draw your own - but note that it has to be based on carefully calculated electorates)
- Write your comments in the box (or alternatively, include them in the uploaded document containing the map)
The LGBC have been known to change their recommendations following a consultation, and we have a strong case! So if lots of people make submissions ...
