Match the new council areas to Parliament's

Like Ross Hussey (Write Back, May 10) I, too, have concerns about council boundaries.

I live in Saintfield, currently in Down District - only 10 miles away from Belfast, Lisburn and Ards. So where are we going? Newry - 35 miles away.

We worried about being overlooked by Down District Council. What chance do we have with a southern-looking council?

What is wrong with parliamentary constituencies being mapped onto local boundaries?

If they are right for Westminister, they should be right for local councils. Or is that too simple?
