The Local Government Boundary Commission has just published its draft recommendations on changes to district ward boundaries in East Hampshire. Whitehill / Liphook / Headley here, Clanfield and the south here. Petersfield and Alton to follow. It recommends multi-councillor wards and has increased the number of these from 5 to 14 leaving only 12 single-councillor wards. Its remit is to create electoral equality. You have until 11th December to say whether or not its recommendations meet this aim. We do not believe that it does.Read more

Roger Mullenger is the Lib Dem candidate in this by-election, following the sad death of Judith Onslow.
As a long serving councillor and former chairman of Liss Parish Council I am putting myself forward as your Liberal Democrat candidate for this very important role on the District Council. For I believe that I have the right skills, abilities and experience to represent the broad range of interests of local residents.
In the recent by-election Trevor Maroney achieved a great result, increasing our vote share from 10% to 31%. Lots of door knocking by Trevor and Focus to nearly all houses made all the difference. Jumped form third to a comprehensive 2nd place, behind the Conservatives candidate, and ahead of UKIP.
