The number of electoral wards and councillors in Camden is set to increase ahead of the 2022 local elections.
Following a review by the Local Government Boundary Commission, all but one of the current council wards in Camden will change.
The number of electoral wards in Camden will increase from 18 to 20 while the number of councillors will increase from 54 to 55.
15 wards will be represented by three councillors and five wards will be represented by two.
The Commission has made these recommendations so that all councillors represent about the same number of residents.
Consultation on these changes was held between November 2018 and September 2019. Residents, disability groups and local stakeholders as well as Camden’s MPs, Councillors and political parties were all asked for their views.
The last electoral ward review in Camden took place in 1999.
Parliament agreed the changes on 12 October 2020 and they will formally take effect from 1 December, 2021 when the Electoral Register is updated. The first election thereafter will be the local council elections on 5 May, 2022.
In preparation for the changes, the council has undertaken a review of its polling districts and polling stations within the new wards.
Registered electors will receive a letter from the Council in January 2022 confirming their voter registration, electoral ward, polling district and local polling station.
Full details of the ward boundary changes made by the Local Government Boundary Commission can be found on their website.
