It may be that not everyone is fully aware of the circumstances. The Boundary Commission was supposed to undertake consultations, but it appears they did not do so. As a result of the judicial review, the Boundary Commission must now delay any recommendations until this matter has been dealt with properly.

Had the commission acted as they should have done this expenditure would not have been incurred.

If the EDDC had not put the case for local democracy they would, no doubt, have been criticised for failing to do so.
