When is the next Chichester District Council election?

As a number of areas are holding council elections this week Chichester residents have been asking when their next chance to vote will be.

Although some local authorities hold elections almost every year, Chichester District Council is one of those which holds all-out elections every four years.

The last time voters went to the polls was in 2019, when the Conservatives lost their majority, before later regaining it after a by-election win, only to lose it again when two councillors became independents.

They still have the largest number of seats with 17 compared to 11 for the Lib Dems, two Greens, two for the Local Alliance, one Labour and three Independents.

The next council election in the district will be this time next year in May 2023.

Meanwhile West Sussex County Council elections are also held every four years, with the last one in 2021, meaning the next one will be in 2025.
