Shoeburyness is 21% larger (a fifth) than West Leigh.

The average ward size is 7852. If you allow a ten per cent variation, only Shoeburyness falls outside of this. Since West Shoebury is under the average perhaps a minor adjustment to the boundary between the two would see Shoeburyness brought back into line with the rest of the borough.

For those interested in registration districts, here are the largest and smallest -

2688 EA Shoeburyness
2533 EY Victoria
2469 WD Eastwood Park
2435 WGZ Chalkwell
2421 WJZ Leigh
