Final recommendations published for Ashford

The Commission has published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for the district of Ashford.

We are proposing that Ashford should be represented by 47 councillors in future. Our final recommendations propose that Ashford's 47 councillors should represent eight two-councillor wards and 31 one-councillor wards across the borough.

The Commission has now completed its review. We are extremely grateful to the people of Ashford who took the time and effort to send us their views. The Commission considered every piece of evidence it received before finalising these recommendations.

In the map below, you can explore our final recommendations (in red) and see how they have changed from the current arrangements (in blue) and the changes we have made as a result of our consultation on draft recommendations (in black).
