The Commission is carrying out an electoral review of North Devon District 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 North Devon.

On 25 July 2017, we started the first period of consultation for a pattern of wards for North Devon District Council. Between 25 July 2017 and 2 October 2017, we are inviting comments on the ward boundaries for the authority.

The Commission has also announced that it is minded to recommend that North Devon District Council should have 41 councillors in the future.

The Commission now needs information from people and groups across North Devon to help it to produce a new pattern of wards to accommodate 41 councillors.

For more information, read our news release and the letter to the Chief Executive of North Devon District 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 North Devon District Council and may contain boundary errors.
