Mid Devon Electoral Review – Consultation Reopening

We wrote to you in April to inform you that we intended to reopen the Mid Devon draft recommendations consultation when we felt we were able to conduct appropriate levels of consultation in the face of the impact of Covid-19. The Commission is now satisfied that, having taken steps to improve accessibility of reviews, it should proceed with its programme.

We are pleased to confirm that we are today reopening this consultation in the draft recommendations phase. We want to know your thoughts on our proposed new ward boundaries. We will accept submissions over the next six weeks, until 20 July, to reflect the time the consultation had been open while ‘lockdown’ was in place. We will continue to accept comments through our web consultation portal  and by email to reviews@lgbce.org.uk. Our new postal address can be found below.

Throughout this process we have been in contact with Mid Devon District Council. We want to make sure that restarting this consultation will not distract them from their critical task of delivering essential public services.

We are informing all affected local authorities, parishes and stakeholders about the approach we are now taking. We will put information about how we are proceeding on individual reviews on the appropriate pages of our website. We encourage all those we are contacting to also use their own channels to spread awareness.
