   Boundary Commission    November 24, 2016

High Legh Parish Council would like to support Knutsford Town Council’s objection to the proposed Boundary Commission proposal to put Knutsford, along with High Legh, into the Altrincham constituency. We support George Osborne MP’s suggestion that Knutsford is instead combined with Macclesfield in a single constituency, including High Legh, resulting in two Cheshire towns and the surrounding villages, in one Cheshire constituency. This would be the right size in terms of population to achieve the required changes.
