The Local Government Boundary Commission for England is asking whether 59 councillors should continue to serve or if there should be more or fewer members in the future.

Its consultation on the set up ends on Monday (June 3).

Max Caller, chairman of the commission, said: “This consultation is the first, but very important part of our electoral review of Aylesbury Vale District Council.

“It is your chance to have your say on how the district is run.

“We want to make sure Aylesbury Vale has the right number of councillors to be able to take decisions on behalf of residents in an effective way as well as being able to represent the interests of all local communities.

“This is your chance to shape your council for the future.”

The district currently has relatively high levels of electoral inequality, with some councillors representing significantly more or fewer voters than others.

For example, Pitstone ward has 27% more electors than the average for district but Bierton ward contains 37% fewer.

The situation means the value of your vote varies depending on where you live in the district.
