The Boundary commission has recommended that Nailsworth is moved from Stroud Constituency to Cotswold
The plans are part of reforms which would see the House of Commons reduce from 650 MPs to 600. A public consultation is now under way and final proposals will not be made until 2018. Members of the public can have their say by giving the Commission their views on these proposals during the 12-week consultation period, either on the Boundary Commission website or in person at public hearings being held in every region.
Our local one is at the Council Chambers Bristol, 17-18 November.
The Town Council will be discussing our approach to these proposals at the next Council meeting on 20th September.
Come along to the King George V Playing Fields on Sunday September 25th to celebrate Pete's Gold Medal in the Men's eight at the Rio Olympics. 3:00pm until 5:00pm.
Pete will officially open the refurbished Tennis Courts and new sports equipment and then be available for selfies, photos, and autographs.
All residents are invited to come along and meet Pete; bring a picnic!

The CLT has been working very hard with Aster Homes and gcp Architects to draw up plans to develop the garage site at Lawnside/Bunting Hill for affordable homes.
At the referendum on 18th August you will be asked to vote on a 'CRTBO' - a Community Right to Build Order - effectively you will decide the planning permission for this exciting development.
10 affordable homes are planned, a mixture of flats and terraced houses. If agreed, they will be available to rent for those on the Stroud Housing List that have local connections with Nailsworth. The Referendum will also include the removal of the Right To Acquire and the Right to Buy, meaning that these homes will stay in the town's ownership for ever.
These homes are being built at no cost to the town (other than the previously agreed administration set-up costs for the CLT). Details and the full CRTBO application are on the front page of the CLT website
