More details from petition creator

The Boundary review of 2018 imposed a number of changes on Bray Parish, which included; The merging of Alexander Ward into Dedworth Ward. The inclusion of the Fisheries as a new separate ward within Bray Parish. The reduction in Councillor numbers from 2 to 1 for Oakley Green and Fifield, which resulted in the loss of an active and valued Councillor, Chris Yates. A change to the Ward Boundary for Holyport and Bray with part of Springfield Park, Moor End and Eskdale Gardens along with a number of properties on Holyport Road becoming part of Bray Ward and Harvest Ride becoming part of Holyport Ward. The first two items do not impact on Bray as a Parish, but the Parish Council is deeply concerned about the additional workload placed on the Ward Councillor for Oakley Green and Fifield due to the reduction in Councillor numbers. Councillors also believe that it was wrong for the Local Government Boundary Commission to move the Boundary for Holyport and Bray, particularly as it cuts across the two communities of Aysgarth Park and Springfield Park. Neither Bray Parish Council, nor local residents were consulted on these changes and strongly believe these changes should be reversed.
