Three wards with 9 councillors
Under this option, the existing Springs and Ellesmere wards would combine into a single new ward, Springs-Ellesmere. Selwyn Central and Malvern wards would remain, but with altered boundaries. The major changes include
- West Melton moving from the current Selwyn Central ward to the Malvern ward
- The area around Bankside moving from Ellesmere to the Malvern ward
- An area east of Rolleston moving from the current Selwyn Central ward into the Springs-Ellesmere ward.
The total number of councillors would reduce from 11 to 9.
