East Suffolk Council Elections

On 1 April, East Suffolk Council will be formed – a new ‘super district’ authority, serving the residents, businesses and communities of both Suffolk Coastal and Waveney. The new district will be served by 55 councillors, each representing a ‘ward’, with 29 separate wards in total. Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils are hosting two special information events in February open to anyone interested in becoming an East Suffolk councillor, regardless of experience. Those interested are invited to book a 30 minute appointment with council officers where they will have the opportunity to ask any questions they have about what the role of a councillor involves and how to stand for election.

The information days take place on:

  • Thursday 21 February – Riverside, 4 Canning Road, Lowestoft, NR33 0EQ
  • Friday 22 February – East Suffolk House, Station Road, Melton, Woodbridge, IP12 1RT
