Town and parish elections

Town and parish council elections take place on Thursday 6 May 2021 for all the seats in the respective councils.  Several towns and parishes are split into wards, which makes a total of 307 electoral areas within the Wiltshire Council local authority area.

Some of the town and parish areas have been affected by the recent electoral review of the Wiltshire Council unitary division boundaries conducted by the Local Boundary Commission for England.  This means that town and parish ward boundary lines may have changed and will come into effect for the May 2021 elections. 

Some town and parish boundaries have also been amended to reflect changes made by the recent Community Governance Review.
