East suffolk Council Ward Boundaries

Overview Map - no labelsIn May 2018, Parliament authorised the creation of a new local authority called East Suffolk Council. The council will replace the existing authorities of Suffolk Coastal District Council and Waveney District Council.

The Commission is now carrying out an electoral review of the new council to decide the number of councillors that should be elected to the authority as well as the names and boundaries of council wards.

The aim of the electoral review is to recommend ward boundaries that mean each councillor represents approximately the same number of voters.

We also aim to ensure that the ward boundaries reflect the interests and identities of local communities, as well as promoting effective local government.

To achieve these aims, we need to re-draw ward boundaries across East Suffolk.

The proposals can be seen here.
