Somerset

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

Reconstituted Somerset has an electorate of 702,965, which means 9 seats with an average of 78,107 voters per seat. This counter-proposal is rather more radical than I would’ve liked because the electorate of the North East area (including Frome) is 160,633. The upper limit per seat is 80,473 and it would only be possible to create two seats within the limit by splitting a ward, for example by including 800 voters from the Dunkerton area in the Bath seat.

So, here’s something new for you to try: a Mendips seat including Keynsham, Radstock and Wells, a Langport-Highbridge seat, and a Glastonbury-Shepton-Frome-Wincanton seat. Enjoy!

One Response to “Somerset”

  1. I’ve also done a plan which has 9 Somerset seats south of the Avon and 9 Glos seats north of it. It isn’t necessary to depart that radically from the BC’s proposals in the Somerset seats and you can put Frome, Norton Radstock and Keynsham all in the same seat. Shepton Mallet would go to Wells and some rural warsd lost to Wells and Glastonbury & Wincanton. It would also mean three rural wards from western BANES would go into Wells as well. So you do have two seats crossing the border between Somerset & BANES, but I see no problem with that – far better anyway than crossing the border between BANES and South Glos as the Commission have proposed
