  8. Near criminal proposal is out of bounds - McAteerRead the original story

    Feb 4, 2015 | Borders Today

    There has been a predictably hostile reaction to a proposal to redraw Scottish Borders Council's ward map ahead of the 2017 elections, with one councillor describing it this week as an act of near criminal folly. Watson McAteer was reacting to the recommendations of the Local Government Boundary Commission that the number of wards should be cut from 11 to 10 and the number of elected members from 34 to 32. In a bid to achieve parity of representation, the Scottish advisory quango has provisionally deemed the ratio of councillors to electorate in the region should be one in 2,800 instead of the current one in 2,639.
