Parish electorates and councillor ratios

When we conduct the Review we must take into account the number of electors, and the number of electors per councillor for each parish. We must also consider any likely future changes to the number or distribution of electors within five years of 23 July 2018, the day the review started.

The table below shows the parishes, their electorate at 3 September 2018, the predicted electorate for 2023, and the number of electors per councillor for 2018 and 2023.

We've used all available information to prepare the predicted electorates, and applied the same electoral forecasting methodology that was used in the South Lakeland Further Electoral Review.

The methodology uses:

  • the electorate figures from 2015 and the previous five years
  • the number of new dwellings built in the five years prior to 2015
  • the total number of dwellings in 2015
  • the number of new dwellings forecast to be built in the five years following 2015

We've used the 2015 data set because it was used to establish the new wards (which came into effect in 2018) and is the most accurate.
