Electoral review of Newcastle
In November 2016 the Local Government Boundary Commission for England concluded their electoral review of Newcastle.
Their final recommendations are:
- Newcastle upon Tyne should be represented by 78 councillors, the same number as there are now;
- Newcastle upon Tyne should have 26 wards, the same number as there are now; and
- The boundaries of all wards should change; none will stay the same.
Even though the number of councillors will stay the same, the shape and size of council wards had to change because of housing developments and changes to the city’s populations.
The Commission have developed their final recommendations based on feedback received through two phases of consultation, including detailed proposals submitted on behalf of the council.
Details of the new ward boundaries are outlined in their report and the citywide maps below outline how the new ward boundaries will differ from those we currently have. You can also download maps of each of the new wards.
