A FEW weeks remain for residents to help shape Rotherham’s future boundaries.
The consultation will create a new pattern of wards for 59 borough councillors — four fewer than currently.
The Local Government Boundary Commission for England has asked for information about where the new ward lines should be drawn.
Chairman Prof Colin Mellors said: “We want to hear local views on where people think the focal point of their community is and where the natural boundaries between communities might lie.”
The commission’s consultation closes on May 8 and the new pattern of wards is expected to be published in July.
