DCC Election Cycle Consultation

Derby City Council has launched an Election Cycle consultation.  What is this consultation about? 

Derby City Council currently holds Local Elections three times in every four years, with a third of seats contested at each election. There is one year where no Local Elections take place. This is known as the ‘fallow year’.

We are considering adopting a 'Whole Council Elections' model, whereby one election would be held every four years starting from 2022.

We would like to hear the views of everyone who lives in Derby on this matter. We would like to know whether you support changing to a 'Whole Council Elections' model or whether you would prefer us to keep our current 'Elections by Thirds' model.
