The East Suffolk Liberal Democrats local party covers an area matching that of the local Suffolk Coastal and Waveney district councils. All Liberal Democrat local parties in Suffolk are organised around one or more local district council boundaries. So our local party covers the same towns, villages and parishes as Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils.
Westminster parliamentary constituency boundaries do not match the district council boundaries, which can be confusing -- especially in the case of Suffolk Coastal, where the district council and parliamentary constituency share a name but have a different geographical spread. In a general election, members of East Suffolk Liberal Democrats fall into three separate constituencies:
- Suffolk Coastal
- Central Suffolk and North Ipswich
The following map shows the geographical spread of East Suffolk Liberal Democrats across the parliamentary constituencies:
The Suffolk Coastal and Waveney parliamentary constituencies are spread across areas covered by:
- East Suffolk Liberal Democrats.
The Central Suffolk and North Ipswich parliamentary constituency is spread across areas covered by:
- East Suffolk Liberal Democrats
- Mid-Suffolk Liberal Democrats
- Ipswich Liberal Democrats.
