Submission to Boundary Commission


I would like to make a submission in relation to the electoral boundaries for Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council.

Council numbers

The terms of reference for the Commission state that “there should be one member for every 4,830 population in each council area”, subject to a maximum total of 40 members. As the population of the county according to the 2011 census is 206,261 this equates to 42.7 members. However I assume the Commission will apply the maximum number of 40 for Dun Laoghaire Rathdown, and my submission is based on that number.
