Shake-up of Chichester’s county council divisions


Several county council divisions in the Chichester district could be redrawn under new proposals.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England is consulting on an electoral review of West Sussex County Council and a draft response has been prepared and was presented to Full Council on Friday July 24.

Major changes would see Siddlesham parish transferred from the Chichester South division to The Witterings, North Mundam parish from Chichester East to Chichester South, and Bostock Road, Graylingwell Drive, Palmersfield Avenue and Kingsmead Avenue from Chichester North to Chichester East.

Meanwhile the division of Fernhurst would be renamed Rother Valley.
