The Boundary Commission appears to have made a real hash of re-warding the SODC electoral areas. This after covering themselves in glory by putting Benson and Cholsey in the same County Council Division.
Their latest wheeze involves putting Cholsey and Brightwell together as a two member ward for the District Council. The re-warding is necessary as SODC has decided to slim down the number of councillors from 48 to 36.
All councils involved – including SODC -have protested against this decision, but still the BC has pressed on with it. Not clever!
Why can’t Cholsey have its own representative? We are a huge village with many social problems and lack of infrastructure.
