Wibsey ward changes.

The boundary commission for England is a committee set up by Parliament; they are required by law to review the electoral arrangements of every principal local authority in England. Their aim is to ensure that the numbers of electors represented by each local councillor is approximately the same in every ward, or as close as possible, taking into account local circumstances. Each authority is reviewed approximately every ten years and in 2002 it was the turn of Bradford. The Electoral Commission considered the recommendations that the commission made, and the changes that were recommended are to be implemented in time for the next local elections on June 10th. As a result of the boundary changes recommended by the commission, Wibsey ward has been altered, Odsal ward will cease to be, and a new Royds ward has been created. The consequence of the new boundaries as they affect Wibsey are summarised below.
