Abolition of the Town's Wards

Following recent amendments to the Local Government Act 1995, the Town’s four Wards have been abolished to create one district.  This means that the Town’s previous representation of two Councillors for each of the four Wards has been changed to eight Councillors representing the district. The 2023 local government elections will see, for the first time, four Councillor district vacancies in lieu of one Councillor vacancy from each of the Plympton, Woodside, Richmond & Preston Point wards. 

It is intended to retain the historic Plympton, Woodside, Richmond and Preston Point ward names simply to reference specific areas of the Town.
