This week BCBC and Town & Community Councillors attended a briefing regarding a review into the BCBC council boundaries. The review is looking at the overall number of County Borough Councillors in BCBC and at individual wards. The review will not include Town & community councils. The initial findings are that BCBC is over represented in comparison with the Welsh average for similar authorities and the overall number of councillors is likely to reduce from 54 to 49 (+\- 1). There is also considerable disparity between the number of residents/electors represented per BCBC councillor across the borough. This means that in the 2022 borough elections there are likely to be 5 fewer county councillors and many of the existing ward boundaries may be changed to achieve more equal councillor to elector ratios. The Boundary Commission will be consulting with various bodies including your Town & Community councils and BCBC ward councillors in the near future. If you have any views on this please contact your local BCBC or Town & Community councillor so that they can be represented in their submissions.

Bridgend County Independents are appalled to see the 22% rise in vacant commercial units in Bridgend Town. BCBC are simply not doing enough for our County Town or to attract new businesses and support those already struggling to make ends meet. In their annual report they describe the rise as "disappointing" and blame it on their own regeneration works. They are finally admitting what traders have been saying for years. The Rhiw redevelopment has devastated footfall in the Market. This administration have been letting our towns down for too long. Where is the plan? Where is the action to back up their hollow words? Things need to change.
