Second phase of consultation for the Moreton-on-Lugg
Community Governance review is now underway
(11 May – 22 June).
A community governance review considers arrangements for parish councils such as creating, merging, altering or abolishing parish councils, changing a parish council’s boundary or the naming of parish councils and their electoral arrangements.
From 13 February to the 6 April, Herefordshire Council conducted a parish wide consultation with the community of Moreton-on-Lugg parish in connection with their community governance review. During that consultation, Moreton on Lugg Parish Council noted that there are a small number of properties affected by a border anomaly. It was proposed that the properties would be better represented in the neighbouring parish of Wellington. Following the first round of consultation the balance of evidence indicates that there are sufficient grounds to progress to formally proposing that the boundary anomaly affecting a small number of properties adjacent to the A49 near Marsh House farm and Westfields be reviewed and addressed. This will necessitate a minor ward boundary change between the Sutton Walls and Queenswood ward.
