2018 Review: Cheshire, Wirral, Trafford & Salford

In News on July 9, 2016 by dadge Tagged: ,

Entitlements:
Wirral 3.14
Cheshire West 3.43
Cheshire East 3.62
Halton 1.24
Warrington 2.05
Trafford 2.13
Salford 2.18
Total 17.80 —-> 18 seats

The spanner in the works here is Halton. The two main unitary authorities could be dealt with together for 7 seats; the Wirral could even be dealt with separately for 3 large seats; but Halton needs to be added to the mix.

It’d be good to use Halton to make up the numbers in the Merseyside group, but that would leave the whole region one seat short, so there’s no real option but to group Cheshire, Wirral and Halton together, and look for another area to make up the numbers, and Trafford & Salford fit the bill.

Finally, Warrington can and should be dealt with separately for 2 seats, but since this review area has an average seat size of less than 73000 it’s very difficult to create 16 good seats in quota without adding Lymm to the Bucklow (Knutsford) seat.
