Sheffield Ward Boundary Review (Periodic Electoral Review)

In 2002-2003 the local government ward boundaries within Sheffield were reviewed. The last review had been in about 1979, and since then the share of electorate in each ward had drifted drastically away from the average. One ward had 8,000 electors and another had 26,000 electors, with all wards electing three councillors.

I submitted a recommended set of proposals and commented on the draft and final recommendations from the Boundary Commission. These documents can be found here, along with an initial recommendation on how to arrange the new wards into new parliamentary constituencies at the parliamentary boundary review after the next General Election.
