North Lincolnshire is set to have new boundaries for its council wards following recommendations by the Local Government Boundary Commission.

In its review of North Lincolnshire, the Commission recommends residents should be represented by 43 councillors, as is currently the case but that two additional wards should be created, taking the total to 19.

The recommendations are that six existing wards should change so there will be seven three-councillor wards, ten two-councillor wards and two single-councillor ward.

Publishing the recommendations Professor Colin Mellors, Chair of the Commission, said: “We are very grateful to people in North Lincolnshire. We looked at all the views they gave us. They helped us improve our earlier proposals.

“We believe the new arrangements will guarantee electoral fairness while maintaining local ties.”

Parliament now needs to agree the changes. The new arrangements would then apply for the 2023 council elections.
