Rather disappointingly, they've not sorted out a single seat for the centre of Elephant & Castle - they're now having 5 council seats to cover the area! So much for consistency and representation!
Why is it that only Cathederals Ward has been totally changed and the Elephant and Castle ignored?
I'm a bit mixed on it, I am glad we got extra councillors but I agree with Liz about E&C, it seems short sighted to not plan for the growth of population that will shortly happen, rather than base it on current population figures.
It makes no logical sense whatsoever that the Elephant & Castle's status as a distinct neighbourhood, with its own particular set of challenges, has been ignored and finds itself split up among different electoral boundaries.
And yes, I did give feedback, I am a nerd!
Yes: I too am a nerd who participated in the consultation, but I get a clear feeling that the planner's minds were already made up long before they asked our opinion...
