The Commission is carrying out an electoral review of East Devon District Council.
The aim of the electoral review is to recommend ward boundaries that mean each district 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 boundaries across East Devon Council." />

An overview map of our draft recommendations (PDF) is available. Please note: this map is very large and may take some time to download.
