Note: Councils are elected for a four year term. The election was due to be held in September 2020 but was postponed a year due to COVID. In July it was again postponed three months due to COVID. Irrespective, the subsequent election will be in September 2024.
In early November, once nominations close, a questionnaire will be sent to all "lead" candidates and independents. Their responses plus an analysis will be provided before Pre-poll Voting opens on Monday 22 November. We do not recommend or support parties or individual candidates.
The rolls for this election close on Monday 25 October.
