On 2 May 2019, there will be elections for District and Town Councillors throughout the Bury St Edmunds Constituency.
With the formation of the new West Suffolk Council through the merger of Forest Heath and St Edmundsbury, 21 councillors will be elected in the 12 wards of what was previously the latter. The old Risbygate and Northgate wards have disappeared and have been replaced by a newly named Tollgate Ward and there are different conformations to the remaining wards. There will now be 3 councillors for the Moreton Hall Ward.
There will also be elections for 17 Town Councillors in Bury St Edmunds.
In the area covered by the Mid-Suffolk Rural Branch, 11 councillors need to be elected to Mid-Suffolk District Council.
Stowmarket Town Council has elections for 16 councillors in 6 wards.
There will be a huge amount of campaigning going on by all our members and we will be taking the fight to the Tories throughout the whole constituency area. We need a change to these local councils who have been steadily eroding the health and well-being of our fellow citizens. The Labour Party will bring the change we need, to create a fairer, greener and happier environment for all.
