2018 Boundary Review
The Boundary Commission for England is conducting a review of parliamentary constituencies and needs your help.
The Commission are involved in a public consultation and request views from individuals, Parish Councils, Churches, Voluntary groups, Schools etc
For more detail go to https://www.bce2018.org.uk/
On this site you will be able to view the proposals, make comments, see what other people have said and learn about us and the review.
The boundary changes proposed create a huge change for the constituencies of Eddisbury and Weavervale.
Approximately half of Eddisbury will transfer to Weavervale and vice versa with a few added bits.
Locally this means the Farndon and Tattenhall Wards will be moving from Eddisbury to Weavervale.
Malpas, Farndon and Tattenhall recently were all part of the larger Broxton Ward and enjoy current and historical connections
An example to retain the historic connection for instance is that, Tilston is in the Farndon ward but is very orientated towards Malpas with schools etc. Malpas remains in Eddisbury.
