Council wants to slash number of councillors
VOTERS in Bexley could lose almost a third of their democratic representatives as the council pushes ahead with plans to slash its number of councillors.
The authority has asked the Local Government Boundary Commission for England to review its number of councillors and council wards - and wants the former to be cut from 63 to 45.
The commission will make a recommendation next month, and there will then be a public consultation from September to November.
It will then make its final recommendations next July, in time for the next local elections in 2018.
