Sheffield

In redistricting, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, Yorks/Humber on October 18, 2011 by dadge

Like Leeds, Sheffield is a city that should be being reviewed on its own, but the Commission has made seats that cross the city’s borders rather than split wards. In Sheffield’s case, it’s actually split a ward, singular, since it’s possible to do it with just the one (West Ecclesfield). It’d be possible to make a much better job with more split wards, but it starts to get messy, so for now, let’s keep it simple. The Commission has already proposed three seats wholly in Sheffield, and the remaining wards can be made into two more seats. To do this, the West seat (I haven’t tried to give them tradtional names) goes up Oughtibridge Lane to include Grenoside. As you can see from the table, the North East seat is still too big, so some people from the Barnes Hall area will also have to be excluded.

Update: Speaking of much better jobs, check out Jonathan Harston’s comprehensive analysis.

  1. With that map, I would call West Hallam, South Heeley and North East Brightside. Anyway, the trouble with only splitting one ward is that it seems you have to split Ecclesfield parish.
