District & Parish Elections 2 May 2019

South Norfolk has been subject to reviews that have resulted in changes to boundaries and governance arrangements to both its district wards and parishes. These will all come into effect for the elections on the 2 May 2019.

District Review

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England recently undertook a review of the number of district councillors and district ward boundaries for South Norfolk. This resulted in retaining the same number of  councillors 46,  but with a reduction in the number of wards they represent from 36 to 26 wards resulting in an increase in multi member wards
