The ruling Labour party on Ashfield District Council was accused of contravening the council’s own constitution after putting forward its formal response to the district’s boundary review.

The Local Government Boundary Commission has been consulting on plans to create new council wards, change ward boundaries and change ward names in Ashfield in order to improve electoral equality in the district so that all votes are worth roughly the same.

Recommendations were put forward to increase the number of councillors by two to 35, representing 22 single-member wards, five two-member wards and one three-member ward.
