Residents across Derbyshire still have time to have their say on proposed boundary changes.
New boundaries are being proposed by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England for council divisions in Derbyshire.
The Commission wants to hear what residents and local organisations think about the proposals and are carrying out a ten-week consultation on the proposals which is running until April 1.
Derbyshire County Council is appealing for residents to have their say in the current consultation.
A spokesman for the council said: “Let the Boundary Commission know what you think about proposed changes to the county council’s electoral divisions.
“The Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) is proposing to make changes designed to ensure Derbyshire county councillors represent around the same number of people.
“The number of councillors would remain the same – 64 – but instead of three of the county’s 61 electoral divisions having two councillors, there would be 64 divisions with one councillor representing each.”
They continued: “An additional councillor is proposed for South Derbyshire and one less in Chesterfield.”
