Labour worried by ‘Frankenstein monster’ boundary proposals
Ashburton will be no more 😢
There’s a growing agreement at Croydon Town Hall that Paul Scott could prove to be the architect of Labour’s demise at the next local elections.
The Woodside councillor, an architect by profession with a busy London practice, is one-quarter of the Gang of Four which controls the Labour council group.
He has created repeated controversies in his capacity as chair of the council’s planning committee. But it is in his backroom role overseeing the council submission to the Local Government Boundary Commission which has caused the Labour group most anxiety lately, especially after the Commissioners published their preliminary report, which included a re-drawing of boundaries almost identical to what the local Tories had suggested.
Some of the new ward boundaries put forward by the Commission have been described as “a Frankenstein’s monster” of a proposal.
