Have your say

East Riding residents could get their say in the debate on local authority boundaries, as proposals for a postal referendum in wards or part of the wards that border with neighbouring Hull City Council go before a meeting of East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Full Council on Wednesday, 2 April.

In recent weeks, Hull City Council has revived the discussion on boundaries, with a view to expanding into areas currently within East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s administrative borders and have decided to establish an Inquiry to look into the issue.

An amendment to the motion proposes that electors in the wards of or part wards of Dale, South Hunsley, Willerby & Kirkella, Tranby, South West Holderness, Mid Holderness, Hessle, Cottingham North and Cottingham South wards be given the opportunity to have their say whether they wish to remain within the present administrative boundaries of the East Riding or be included in an expansion of Hull.
