Excerpt from Boundaries Commission Review announcement today. The original proposal was for the SW/SE constituency boundary to go along the railway track and then to swing into into Newlands. It would have cut Pollokshields Ward into two. The new boundary is along Pollokshaws Rd and respects existing boundaries. We will discuss at next Strathbungo Society Committee meeting but the changes appear to have addressed our concerns.
“The Boundary Commission for Scotland published its Revised Proposals for UK Parliament constituencies today, Tuesday 17 October 2017, for an eight-week final public consultation period. The Review covers all of Scotland except Orkney and Shetland constituency and Na h-Eileanan an lar constituency which are fixed by legislation.
The final consultation period allows further comments to be made to the Commission concerning any of its Revised Proposals for constituencies.
Comments on the Revised Proposals can be made on our interactive consultation portal, www.bcs2018.org.uk, where you can view the boundaries and name of the constituencies proposed and compare them with the existing constituency boundaries and other boundaries. Comments can also be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or in writing to the address on this letter. All comments should be submitted no later than 11 December 2017 which is the end of the statutory consultation period, after which the Commission will finalise its recommendations and submit these to the Secretary of State for Scotland in September 2018.
