Ribble Valley boundary change opinion sought

RESIDENTS of South Ribble, which includes Samlesbury, have until January 6 give their opinion on a new pattern of wards for the borough council to The Local Government Boundary Commission for England.

It has recommended that the council should have 50 councillors in the future, five fewer than present.

The proposals mean those councillors would represent 19 two-member and four three-member wards across the borough.

Commission chair said: “We are keen to hear local views about our boundary proposals before we finalise them in March 2014.

“We want to make sure ward boundaries across South Ribble reflect the identities and interests of local communities.”

who cares?

why can't these people just make a decision. Instead we they **** about for months so they can get 'local veiws'. Well guess what, you cant please all the people all the time. Not that anyone gives a stuff anyway.
I mean come on...when can we have a 'debate' about some REAL issues like the colour of the recycling bins or how many times a week we cut the grass in the parks? Go on I dare you, lets start debating some really thorny issues! Unbeleivable. These people need to spend some time in the private sector where decisions are made, things happen and we move on.

Typical LT reporting, the headline says "Ribble Valley" when the article is clearly about "South Ribble"! Which council are you actually talking about? The mention of Salmesbury would suggest South Ribble Borough Council rather than RVBC but there again you could just as well have been talking about BwD or Preston for that matter!

I think it's more the ability to understand rather than the reading. I must say access to an atlas perhaps should be be obligatory to headline writers and reporters..
