A Burntwood councillor says residents in Hammerwich and Wall will be well represented at Westminster, regardless of which constituency they end up in.
The local Conservative Association has suggested the area should be moved into the Tamworth voting area.
It comes after the Boundary Commission revealed plans to switch the Streethay and Whittington areas into the neighbouring parliamentary constituency in a bid to even up the number of electors represented by each MP.
The original plan has been branded “nonsense” by Lichfield’s Conservative MP Michael Fabricant, while the local Green Party chairman said moving Tamworth into the Whittington area was “mindless”.
But Cllr Doug Pullen, the Conservative representative for Hammerwich and Wall on Lichfield District Council, said he was not overly concerned by changes which could see parts of the electorate voting for a different MP.
“Clearly it makes sense to keep areas with some sort of commonality together – those with a shared sense of place, history and infrastructure and employment patterns – while also striving to achieve a balance of numbers,” he said.
“However, communities aren’t in my experience bound together by parliamentary constituencies, nor by county council divisions or district council wards. They have their own multitude of intricate communities based on more than just geography.”
Christopher Pincher, the Conservative MP for Tamworth, had previously urged people to voice their opinion on any proposed changes.
But Cllr Pullen said he believed the area was in safe hands, regardless of whether it voted for a Tamworth or a Lichfield representative.
“The truth is we have excellent MPs in Michael Fabricant and Christopher Pincher and I am confident that whatever decision the Boundary Commission make, residents in Hammerwich and Wall will continue to be well represented in Westminster.”
