The Commission is carrying out an electoral review of Nottingham City Council.


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 pattern of wards reflects the interests and identities of local communities as well as promoting effective local government. In order to achieve these aims, we need to re-draw ward boundaries across Nottingham.



The consultation on our warding arrangements for Nottingham City Council has now closed.

On 27 June 2017, we started the first period of consultation for a pattern of wards for Nottingham City Council. Between 27 June 2017 and 4 September 2017, we invited comments on the ward boundaries for the authority.

The Commission has also announced that it is minded to recommend that Nottingham City Council should have 55 councillors in the future; the same as the current arrangement.

The Commission needed information from people and groups across Nottingham to help it to produce a new pattern of wards to accommodate 55 councillors.

For more information, read our news release and the letter to the Chief Executive of Nottingham City Council.

You may find the electoral figures useful when thinking about warding arrangements. 

Polling district maps may also be useful when thinking about warding arrangements. You can view the polling district map below. Please note, polling district mapping data has been supplied by Nottingham City Council and may contain boundary errors.
