Whilst superficially unattractive it may make it easier to have minimal changes across both counties. The only crossing I have made is to transfer Jacksdale ward from Ashfield into Amber Valley. Whilst it does cross the county boundary the villages of Ironville and Jacksdale are very close. This puts the remainder of Ashfield in quota and Amber Valley would also remain in quota
The remainder of Derbyshire can go ahead as most people have by proposed with the Hatton/Hilton move to Derbyshire Dales and South West Parishes from Dales to Mid Derbyshire
In Nottinghamshire I have moved Ransom Woods Ward from Mansfield to Sherwood. Sturton and Beckingham transfer from Bassetlaw to Newark. Lowdham from Newark to Gedling
I would then leave the city as three seats and split one South ward between North and East. Probably Leen Valley
Broxtowe and Rushcliffe as is
I’m sure if I have my sums wrong someone will correct me ( i’m a first time poster so be gentle)
Welcome to the forum.
I fear your Newark is too big: adding Sturton and Beckingham and removing Lowdham gives 79,351 on Boundary Assistant. That said, it's possible a Derbyshire crossing might indeed help in Notts. One idea I've tried is to put the four Warsop wards with Bolsover; Derbyshire can easily absorb the electorate, and it's then possible to get a workable map in Nottinghamshire without crossing the Nottingham city boundary and with no bite out of Mansfield. Personally I think I'd stick with respecting the Notts/Derbys border and not the city boundary (unless someone can come up with a non-hideous map which respects both) but it's always good to see the options.
