Marple South ward name consultation

A consultation on a proposal to change the name of Marple South Ward to Marple South and High Lane Ward to better reflect the whole community it represents took place from 17 July 2017 until 11 August 2017.

A change of ward name will have no impact on the number of councillors elected for the ward or the councillors that represent the ward. The new ward name would be used in all election material for the local elections in May 2018 and future elections.

A report will be submitted to a specially convened council meeting on 26 October 2017 which will consider the views received and make a decision.
