Today, I’ve been to the Boundary Commission’s public hearing to make the case for keeping our constituency together.
Under the current proposals:
- Doxford would be placed in a constituency stretching to Hartlepool
- The Coalfields wards would be divided, cutting across community ties and shared history
- Houghton and Sunderland South would be split in three
- Sunderland would be separated across five constituencies
Whatever your politics, I hope you can join me in fighting for the best interests of our area.
Please share your views ahead of the deadline this coming Monday, 4th April: https://www.bcereviews.org.uk/?fbclid=IwAR0LGzh0uZAHdGaBOAbL5kfU7_s4SsDGBb8-AcGmCxS5snkvdX6djXeMnC4
