Shepway District Council is looking at its ward boundaries as part of a review of electoral arrangements being carried out by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England.
The Commission has already concluded that 30 councillors should represent Shepway. The current number is 46.
In the second part of the review the council was asked to look at the number, size and boundaries of wards that would be best served by 30 councillors. The council's proposals aim to deliver electoral equality (ensuring that each councillor represents about the same number of people), reflect the various communities in Shepway and help provide effective local government.
Councillors considered the issues at a meting on Thursday 28 March. Their proposals and maps can be viewed below
