The Green Party say the argument for moving Whittington and Streethay into the Tamworth constituency does not stack up.
The Boundary Commission had drawn up plans to move parts of Lichfield into the neighbouring electoral area.
It would mean voters in these areas calling a ballot for Tamworth’s MP rather than Lichfield’s.
The move was branded as a “nonsense” by MP Michael Fabricant.
Robert Pass, lifelong Whittington resident and current chair of the Green Party’s Lichfield and Burntwood branch, said: “For once I find myself in agreement with Michael Fabricant. The Boundary Commission’s plan to remove Whittington from the Lichfield constituency is mindless and insensitive.
“Whittington has historic connections with Lichfield, from the origins of the Barracks, to the fact that Whittington Primary School feeds King Edward VI secondary school.
“Whittington has far closer associations with Lichfield than Tamworth.”
The changes are part of proposals to balance out the number of voters in each constituency and reduce the overall number of MPs.
But Mr Pass also questioned the rhetoric behind the new proposals.
“The official reasons the government gave for the Boundary Review don’t hold water,” he added. “They said they wanted to cut costs by reducing number of MPs, however, the Conservative Party has been busy stuffing the Lords with huge numbers of new unelected representatives at great public expense, which rather undermines the aim.
“They are also claiming that they want to even out the size of constituencies so people are more fairly represented.
“However, that is not what will be achieved, because the government choose to use December 2015 Electoral Register figures, knowing that huge numbers of young and poorer voters had fallen off the register at that date due to changes made to voter registration, against strong Electoral Commission advice. This meant the register was at its most inaccurate ever, and the inaccuracies greatly favour the Conservatives.
“The real prize here is a swathe of new Tory ‘safe’ seats.”
People have until December 5 to give their views on the proposal via the online consultation website.
