Consultation on changes to electoral cycle

A specially convened meeting of Peterborough City Council took place on 12 October 2022.

At this meeting, the Council did not agree to move to a scheme for whole (or 'all out') elections. We will therefore remain with the current electoral system of voting by thirds.

This means that May 2023 elections will be held for 20 seats on the Council.

The schedule for Parish Councils will not change.
