Somerset version 2

In redistricting, Somerset, South West on October 4, 2011 by dadge

I think this arrangement of seats is probably more acceptable than my first proposal, but it does involve splitting the Bathavon West ward, with part (shown by a black dot) going into the Bath seat.

I think the only way of avoiding the split ward is by including the area south of Chew Valley lake in the Wells constituency. This small area (shown by white squares), as well as being in a different local authority, is divided from the rest of the Wells area by the Mendips, and I’d imagine that most people there would prefer to stay in a seat with Norton-Radstock and Keynsham.

These are the four seats that are affected in this revised proposal:
