Bristol city councillor numbers could drop after review

The number of councillors in Bristol could be reduced depending on a review of the city's ward boundaries.

Mayor George Ferguson has suggested numbers could drop from 70 to 62 as, he reasons, fewer are needed with a mayor running the city council.

A review will take place across two years from 2014, according to the Local Government Boundary Commission.

Any recommended changes will then be in place by the time of Bristol's first all-out council elections in 2016.
