Boundary Commission: Include Wednesbury in the Constituency name!

This petition had 297 supporters

Luke Giles and Andrew Scattergood, both residents of Wednesbury, need your help to stop Wednesbury from being deleted off the constituency map.

The Boundary Commission for England is conducting a review of parliamentary constituencies. As part of this review, the constituency that Wednesbury currently falls into is set to be changed. The new proposed constituency which includes Darlaston, Tipton and Wednesbury is being put forward to be called ‘Darlaston and Tipton’, which completely ignores Wednesbury and the people that live in Wednesbury.

Wednesbury has a long and proud history. It is vital to the local economy, has important transport links and has a number of rich and diverse buildings. The people of Wednesbury are proud of where they live and will not stand by while our town is ignored and deleted off the map. It is vitally important that Wednesbury is not only recognised but not left behind by the politicians in Westminster. If Wednesbury is left out of the new constituency name then we fear it will be left out of the politicians agenda.

Councillors of Wednesbury fully support this campaign and are raising their own objections to this. Labour Councillor Peter Hughes said, “I’m disappointed that Wednesbury has been completely left out of the new name proposed for the constituency. We take no issues with Darlaston and Tipton being in the name as we recognise and admire their own history and local identity but the fact that Wednesbury has been left out of the new constituency name is not acceptable. Fellow Councillors and I intend to fight this all the way so that the people of Wednesbury are not forgotten about.”

Our petition is asking that the proposed constituency name of ‘Darlaston and Tipton’ is changed to include Wednesbury. Please sign and share.

Luke and Andrew.
