Bothal, Choppington and Sleekburn electoral divisions to move into more appropriate LAC's.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


We strongly object to the following:

Choppington electoral division being placed into Morpeth Local Area Council.
Sleekburn electoral division being placed into Ashington and Blyth Local Area Council.
Bothal electoral division being placed into Morpeth Local Area Council.

Choppington and Stakeford electoral division are closely integrated with each other and with, in some cases, residents of one electoral division living directly across the road from residents from another electoral division. Some of these residents are family members living across the road from each other. To split a community between 2 Local Area Councils can only be detrimental to that community.

Sleekburn electoral division includes part of Bedlington Station but by placing that electoral division within the Ashington and Blyth Local Area Council you are splitting up the Bedlington community, which again can only be considered as detrimental. Surely it makes sense for a Bedlington Station to be part of Bedlington & Cramlington Local Area Council?

Bothal electoral division is part of the Ashington Community and is in Ashington and is in a similar situation to Choppington with residents and families on both sides of a road being in different Local Area Councils. Again, moving this electoral division into Morpeth Local Area Council splits up a Community and can only be detrimental to that community.

We respectfully demand that these electoral divisions are immediatey realigned into the more appropriate Local Area Councils as indicated above.
