Cornwall Council boundaries

The boundaries of all Cornwall Council electoral divisions will change at the 2021 elections.

There will be 87 new divisions, each electing one Cornwall Councillor.

These changes follow a review in 2016 to 2018 by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE).  Details of the changes were in the LGBCE report showing the final recommendations for Cornwall

The LGBCE also changed parish arrangements in the following areas from the 2021 elections:

  • Bodmin Town Council
  • Bude-Stratton Town Council
  • Camborne Town Council
  • Carn Brea Parish Council
  • Dobwalls and Trewidland Parish Council
  • Egloshayle Parish Council

The changes for the parish areas above were in paragraphs 208 to 238 of the report. Further details are on the LGBCE website.

Further changes were made to some parish areas in December 2020 by a Cornwall Council Community Governance Review. As a result, the LGBCE agreed to minor changes to electoral division boundaries in these affected areas in January 2021.

We also reviewed our polling districts and polling stations to fit the new boundaries. This means that some people will be required to vote at a different polling station than before.

We published a new register of electors on 1 March 2021 based on the final electoral arrangements for the 2021 elections.
