Part of cost-cutting measures
PEOPLE in Bexley could see their democratic representation reduced as part of the council’s cost-cutting.
The council wants to reduce its number of councillors – meaning each councillor represents more people - to save money.
It has asked the Local Government Boundary Commission for England to review the number of councillors it has, and the areas and numbers of people they represent, but has said that it wants the number to be reduced.
A council spokesman said: “This will save money and is part of a wider programme to streamline the council’s operations and focus available resources on essential services.”
People in Bexley will be able to have their say during the review.
