Residents may be aware that the Local Government Boundary Commission is working on a revision to Southampton’s ward boundaries (an additional ward is to be added), with an initial consultation that ended on 31st January. HCERA discovered that Southampton City Council had submitted a proposal for boundary changes that would see the Estate carved in two between Swaythling and Bassett across Bassett Green Rd.

HCERA submitted responses of our own indicating that putting a boundary in the middle of a conservation area and residents association is inappropriate. The Boundary Commission will be publishing its own proposals in due course, with a further consultation. We will be keeping an eye on what they propose.
