Local Government Boundary Review
The ward boundary review was finalised in September 2016. Changes to the ward boundaries will take effect from 2018 and are not subject to any further consultation.
As a result of this review, elections will take place on an all-out basis every 4 years from 2018. This is a change from the current cycle of electing by thirds for 3 consecutive years followed by a fallow year. All Councillors will be elected to their seats at the same time. After the elections in May 2018, Birmingham City Council should be represented by 101 councillors serving 69 wards comprising of 37 single-member wards, 32 two-member wards (there are currently 120 councillors representing 40 three member wards).
In order to move towards the new arrangements, we are undertaking a full review of Polling Districts and Places in order to ensure that polling stations are located in the most suitable place within the new wards.
