Neston & Parkgate
88 We received two submissions for this area in addition to the three borough-wide submissions. These were from a councillor who stated that residents would prefer single-councillor wards in the town and from Neston Town Council.
89 The Town Council submitted a scheme for three single-councillor wards, all of which would have good electoral equality in 2023. The Town Council explained that its proposal was basedon a preference for single-councillor wards, accepting as a consequence that some of its boundaries ‘are somewhat arbitrary’.
90 The Conservative Group proposed a three-councillor ward for Neston and Burton. Cheshire West Labour proposed three single-councillor wards while
Cheshire West & Chester Liberal Democrats proposed two single-councillor wards and one two-councillor ward covering Neston and Burton, all of which had poor electoral equality.
91 We visited Neston and carefully considered the boundaries proposed. While these were logical in places they were also somewhat arbitrary in others, as the Town Council stated. We considerthat the town is a cohesive unit and, given the limited community evidence in the submissions we received, dividing Neston into three wards risks splitting communities unnecessarily. Therefore, we propose to adopt the three-councillor ward proposed by the Conservative Group.
