Have your say

Sheffield residents have just a week left to have their say on how many councillors should represent the city as part of an electoral review.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England is asking for people’s views on whether 84 representatives should continue to serve Sheffield Council.

The commission says there are ‘significant imbalances’ in representation, with some councillors now catering for fewer people, or in some cases more, in each ward.

But, in a report earlier this year, Sheffield Council defended its 84 councillors. Chief executive John Mothersole said research found many people believed the current number was ‘about right’.

The consultation closes next Monday.
