The Crawley Borough Council Electoral Cycle

Following the 2018 ward boundary review by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England, the number of Councillors for Crawley was set at 36 and elections for all councillors for the new wards were held in 2019.

Subsequent elections are held annually on the first Thursday in May for one third of Borough councillors in a 3 year cycle. In the fourth year there are elections for West Sussex County Council and there are no scheduled Crawley Borough Council elections. There are also no elections in one year of the 3 year cycle in wards that, due to size, elect two councillors instead of three. These wards are Furnace Green Ward, Gossops Green & North East Broadfield Ward and Tilgate ward.
