2018 Review: Leeds & Bradford

In News on July 7, 2016 by dadge Tagged: , ,

Entitlements:
Leeds 6.89 seats
Bradford 4.37
Total 11.26 —-> 11 seats

Because Bradford borough is too big for 4 seats, it makes sense to add its Ilkley and Wharfedale wards to a Leeds seat. This allows for a reasonable redistribution in Leeds with only 2 split wards. Calverley (polling districts CFA & CFB, 4048 voters) is in the Aire/Wharfe seat, and Holbeck (polling districts BHA BHB BHH BHJ, 2811 voters) is in the Central seat.

In Bradford, Bingley needs to be in the Keighley seat with a couple of the Bingley villages. I think Cottingley belongs with Bingley, so I’ve included Denholme and Wilsden (polling districts 3E 3F 3G 3H, 5939 voters) in the Shipley seat. The border between the Shipley and South seats goes along the Middle Brook, crossing the Clayton & Fairweather Green ward. Clayton (polling districts 8D 8E 8F 8G, 5639 voters) is in the South seat.
