2018: Essex

In News on June 12, 2016 by dadge Tagged: , , , , , ,

I think there are two main options for Essex, and they are One Basildon or Three Basildons.

The latter is similar to what was decided at the “zombie Review”: Basildon split between three constituencies:

essex1

Grays Thurrock 75935
Basildon S & Thurrock E 75925
Castle Point 76010 – includes SE Pitsea
Basildon North 73108 – includes Billericay & Wickford
Brentwood 75667
Epping Forest 76966
Harlow & Ongar 76631
Chelmsford 78107
Saffron Walden 72477
Southend West 71636
Southend East 73136
Battlesbridge 74775 – includes Hockley & Hawkwell
Maldon 74149
Braintree 71254
Colchester 74140
Harwich 78323
Clacton 76358

I prefer a more radical approach that unifies Basildon town in one seat:

essex

Grays Thurrock 75935
Brentwood & East Thurrock 74863
Basildon 71441
Castle Point 74488 – includes West Leigh
Southend West 78267
Rochford 71423 – includes Hockley & Hawkwell
Battlesbridge 76183 – includes Wickford
Harlow & Epping 77929
Loughton 77500
Chelmsford 78107
Billericay & Chelmsford Rural 71760
Saffron Walden 72848
Braintree 75064
Maldon 75832 – includes Tiptree ward

2018 Review: Bedfordshire

In News on June 6, 2016 by dadge Tagged: , , , ,

The parts of Bedfordshire are entitled to the following numbers of seats:

Bedford 1.58
Central Beds 2.64
Luton 1.66

Total 5.88, rounded up to 6.

There are several options. First, regarding the northern half of the county, it’s possible to have a Bedford-Rural-and-Biggleswade seat (as now), (N1) with or (N2) without the Wilshamstead and Eastcotts wards which are in Bedford borough but could be included in the Mid Beds seat, and it’s also possible to have (N3) a Bedford Rural seat without Biggleswade, which would then form part of an East Beds seat.

Secondly, regarding Luton and South Beds, there are three possible seat combinations:

S1: Luton South; Luton North; Dunstable, Houghton & Leighton
S2: Luton South; Luton North & Dunstable; Houghton & Leighton
S3: Luton South; Luton North & Houghton; Dunstable & Leighton

It’s only really the third of these that allows the full range of options in the north of the county. The other two only work with the smaller of the two Bedford-Rural-and-Biggleswade seat options.

The burning question is which map do the people of Bedfordshire prefer?

N1: Biggleswade in North Beds
beds llh1

N3: Biggleswade in East Beds
beds llh2

S1: North Luton with villages
beds lls

S2: North Luton with Dunstable
beds lld

S3: North Luton with Houghton
beds llh

Edit: So here’s my current Bedfordshire plan…

North Beds 77718

Mid Beds 71526
South West Beds 74132*
Luton North 71048* (includes Chalgrave 377 voters)
Luton South 71881
