Proposed changes to council wards in Birmingham would see a redrawn map of Bournville with fewer elected councillors and Stirchley forming its own ward.
In the changes now under consultation, the boundary commission are proposing that Bournville ward become ‘Bournville and Cotteridge’ and its boundary extended up to Northfield on one side but reduced on the other along the line of the cross-city railway.
This new ward would then have two councillors rather than three. Stirchley will become a ward on its own with just one councillor representing it.
The plans are out for consultation until 8th February: consultation.lgbce.org.uk/node/5688
