Have your say on Draft Boundary Commission Ward Boundaries for Grange Park and Winchmore Hill
CONSULTATION NOW CLOSED
The Local Government Boundaries Commission has published its recommendations for redrawing Enfield's wards. This new pattern of wards is intended to equalise the number of voters per ward and be a better reflection of the interests and identities of local communities.
Unlike the recently constituency changes (not yet published), which could result in the abolition of our Enfield Southgate constituency. these draft proposals seem to make sense.
A consultation has been launched which is due to run until 5/8/19; with final recommendations to be be published on 1/10/19.
Grange ward would be renamed as Grange Park, radiating out from Grange Park station.
Under these proposals, the ward would have two councillors (currently three),
serving an electorate which is forecast to rise from 6939 to 7720.
Winchmore Hill ward would also lose on councillor; even though the electorate is projected to rise
from 6788 to 7596.
The ward will no longer encompass the Lakes Estate in Palmers Green, although the residential roads
north of Fox Lane will be in Winchmore Hill ward, even though they are part of the N13 Palmers Green postcode.
