New Council Wards & All Out Elections
New Wards for SCDC
All South Cambridgeshire District Council residents will be able to vote on 3 May 2018, electing 45 District Councillors to represent 26 revised wards.
These new wards have come about after the Council was subject to an electoral review, undertaken independently by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (www.lgbce.org.uk).
Full details of the new wards can be seen on the LGBCE website, or a summary map can be viewed below.
The elections on 3 May will be the first elections at which all district and parish council seats in South Cambridgeshire will be contested at the same time. This is as a result of a decision of the Council to change it's electoral pattern.
All Out Elections
On 24 September 2015, South Cambridgeshire District Council resolved to move to all out elections (whole council) with effect from the elections to be held in May 2018.
This means that from 2018 all seats on South Cambridgeshire District Council will be contested at the same time. The Council also voted to change the schedule of parish elections in South Cambridgeshire so that all parish councils have elections in the same year as district council elections.
