Bramhall South Ward Name Consultation
Stockport Council is consulting on a proposal to change the name of Bramhall South Ward to Bramhall South and Woodford Ward.

Stockport Council has received feedback that there is confusion surrounding the location and boundaries of the Bramhall North and Bramhall South wards. It is proposed that the inclusion of Woodford within the existing title of Bramhall South ward would clarify this and better reflect the community identity of the area. It would also assist with better integrating and embedding the Woodford area as part of the Borough of Stockport.

The consultation feedback will be presented to a specially convened Council meeting on 3 April 2014, when a decision will be made on whether to change the name. If approved, the new name will be brought into effect in time for the local and European Parliamentary elections in May 2014. The change would not affect the number of Councillors elected for the area or the individual Councillors representing Bramhall South residents.

This consultation ends on 7 March 2014. The decision will be published on the Council’s website on 4 April 2014.

wow thank goodness for that, i was just thinking about that last night lol!
wonder how much thats going to cost the tax payer to have a consultation then to change paperwork etc and then the bit you quoted "The change would not affect the number of Councillors elected for the area" makes me chuckle, either there's only the usual cllr's per ward anyway in those areas or theyre going to be paying more than they need for the ward!

Why bother with a "consultation?" They don't listen to the voters anyway, its a done deal.

Gosh what an important development. Perhaps we can safely forget about all those other pressing issues the area has as these Councillors certainly seem to have their collective fingers on the pulse.
