The next elections for the parish council will be held in May 2020
The Local Government Boundary Commission Review in 2014 and the Stroud District Council Community Governance Review in 2018 decided to rearrange Randwick and Westrip into three wards for elections. The Commission’s aims were to provide “good electoral equality, with each councillor representing, as closely as possible, the same number of voters”.
From May 2020 electors will vote in these three wards –
- Randwick Ward electing 4 Councillors
- Randwick South East Ward – 2 Councillors
- Randwick South West Ward – 3 Councillors
There is a map showing the new wards on page nine of this SDC document
Information about standing for election will be available here before the election.
