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.

The consultation on the warding arrangements for North Devon closed on 3 October 2017.

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 invited comments on the ward boundaries for the authority.

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

The Commission needed 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 have found the electoral figures useful when thinking about warding arrangements.

Guidance is available on our Guidance Page. You may also wish to read our document Electoral Reviews: Technical Guidance, which contains detailed guidance on the review process and information on the legislation reviews are carried out under.

As part of the preliminary process we consulted with North Devon District Council on the most appropriate council size (the number of councillors on North Devon District Council). We received one submission on council size:
