Greater Liverpool

In Merseyside, North West, redistricting on October 12, 2011 by dadge

This review area covers the following boroughs (TE=theoretical entitlement to seats):

  electorate   TE
Knowsley 111,388   1.45
Liverpool 315,865   4.12
St Helens 137,767   1.80
Sefton 206,323   2.69
Halton 92,550   1.21
total 863,893   11.27

Thus the area gets 11 MP’s with an average seat size of 78,536.

What’s more, Liverpool can be dealt with on its own, with 4 seats, and Sefton & Knowsley and St Helens & Halton can be paired with 4 and 3 seats respectively.

It’s unfortunate that Formby is split, but to un-split it would require the Southport seat to include some wards from West Lancs District, which would have knock-on effects up the Ribble valley, and there is no room to put the extra electors in another Sefton seat.

Ward sizes in Liverpool mean that it’s impossible to fit 4 seats of the regulation size in the city without ward-splitting. I did try! But much better to keep Liverpool as a single entity that to embark on a tacking exercise, adding bits from other authorities (e.g. the Sefton wards of Stockbridge and Netherton that the Commission has shoe-horned into Liverpools seats) to cobble together seats of the required size.
