Review of East Suffolk Warding by the Boundaries Commission

The following comments were received regarding the proposals and potentially impacting the outcome for Kelsale cum Carlton.

Kelsale & Yoxford Warding Proposal

52] We received four submissions relating to this area, in addition to general support from the Councils. Kelsale-cum-Carlton Parish Council expressed a general concern over the size of the proposed ward and stated that their links lie more with the Saxmundham area; however, no alternative warding pattern was provided here.

53] A local resident opposed the draft recommendations in this area, stating that Walpole, Cratfield and Linstead should be included in a Halesworth ward, and that Leiston should be included in Kelsale & Yoxford. However, this proposal would have significant knock-on effects on the surrounding wards, and no evidence was put forward to justify moving away from the draft recommendations here.

54] A local resident supported the boundaries here but proposed an alternative name of Kelsale & Chediston; however, we are content that the two primary settlements are represented in the name of this ward and are not proposing to alter it. Another local resident queried the eastern boundary of this ward; however, as this follows the parish boundary in the area, we are content to retain this as part of the final recommendations.
