Local authority member review

A review examining how many councillors Scotland's 32 local authorities should have has begun.

As well as recommending the number of elected members councils should have, the Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland will look at the number of wards in each council and their boundaries.

The public will also be consulted, with this phase expected to begin in May.

The commission will take into account levels of deprivation, as well as population.
