Decision details

Draft proposals for new Parliamentary constituency boundaries 2023 - consultation

Decision Maker: Council

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


1.         The Chief Executive is authorised to respond on behalf of the council to address administrative issues which arise as a result of the proposals.

2.         The Leaders of the Groups are asked to provide any group responses to the Chief Executive by 4pm on 28 July for incorporation into his response. It will be made clear that any responses from groups are from those groups and not the council as a body.

3.         The Council is opposed to the removal of the Adlington & Anderton ward and the Chorley North East ward from the Chorley constituency. Both areas have formed part of the Chorley parliamentary constituency since 1918 with local residents having close links to the town and borough. We therefore ask the Boundary Commission to re-examine the proposal to move the two wards into the newly formed West Pennine Moors constituency and ensure that they remain within the Chorley constituency.
