From the May 2021 Cornwall Council elections, there will be 87 Electoral Divisions in Cornwall. Each division will elect one Cornwall councillor.
More details are available on our boundary reviews and changes page.
There will also be changes to some parish and town council warding arrangements.
From the May 2021 elections, some parish and town council boundaries will also change.
Some areas of land have moved from one parish area to another by Cornwall Council after the recent Community Governance Review.
Some of these changes affect an electoral division boundary for Cornwall Council elections. Where appropriate a division has also changed to match the new parish boundary. Any such changes have been approved by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England.
