To ask the Scottish Government whether it will ensure that the modern boundaries of a national park are not used by the Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland to decide on ward boundaries rather than other links such as social cohesion, communications and historical connection.

Answered by Marco Biagi (12/11/2015):

The Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 as amended sets out how the Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland is to conduct reviews of local government arrangements, including specifying matters to which the commission is required to have regard in conducting such reviews. Within that framework it is for the commission to decide how it will conduct reviews, including what matters they will take into account in producing any proposals arising from such reviews. Decisions on whether to implement proposals produced by the commission, including any proposed changes to ward boundaries, will be taken by the Scottish Ministers.
