Boundary Commission Report - Newport
Local Democracy and Boundary Commission for Wales
Local Government (Democracy) (Wales) Act 2013
Review of Electoral Arrangements for the City and County Borough of Newport
Some of Newport City Council’s ward boundaries will change after the Welsh Government decided to accept the recommendations of the Local Democracy and Boundary Commission for Wales.
It means that Newport’s number of councillors will increase by one, taking the council from 50 to 51 members – an average of 2.156 electors per member.
The number of wards will also be increased from 20 to 21, with 18 wards electing more than one councillor.
Eleven of the current wards will remain the same.
The changes, which come into force for the next council elections in May 2022, include:
A new Rogerstone West ward to include Afon Village with two members
Rogerstone East with one member
Rogerstone North with one member
Tredegar Park and Marshfield ward covering Coedkernew, Tredegar Park, Wentlooge, Marshfield and Michaelstone-y-Fedw with three members
Stow Hill ward will now include the Mon Bank development
Communities of Bishton, Langstone, Llanvaches and Penhow will combine to form the Bishton and Langstone Ward with two members
Goldcliff, Llanwern, Nash and Redwick will form the Llanwern ward with one member
