EXPERTS working on revisions to Oxford’s ward boundaries want residents to give their views on another set of proposed changes.

The Local Government Boundary Commission put out a set of proposals in June and aims to publish its planned changes in February.

Now the commission has released its latest revised scheme for Oxford, drawing on feedback from residents.

The commission has changed proposals residents said would ‘divide the Florence Park community’ and other plans that suggested Rymers Lane ‘would not be a strong or recognisable boundary between wards’.

Amongst other changes, the boundary of the current St Clement’s ward would not stretch out as far as the Iffley Road if the most recent changes are adopted.

Other proposals which some residents said would divide ‘communities in the Charles Street, Howard Street and Percy Street area between wards’ have also been changed.

Professor Colin Mellors, the chairman of the commission, said: “We listened carefully to all the views put to us in the previous consultation and have made significant changes to the original recommendations in the south eastern part of the city.

“We are now asking local people to log on to our website to tell us what they think about these proposals before we publish final recommendations for the whole city in February.”

The new consultation opened yesterday and will be open for comments until Tuesday, December 4.
