Thetford Town Council Wards and Councillors

In the parish of Thetford, residents are represented on Thetford Town Council by 16 councillors, who are elected from 6 parish wards. These parish wards are shown on the map, and the current councillors for each are listed below. Councillors are elected for a term of four years, with the last full contest being the May 2019 elections. The town councillors are not paid for their work on the council, and do not receive any allowances for expenses. The one exception is the Mayor, who is reimbursed for expenses (e.g. travel costs) incurred while attending events in an official capacity.

If the 2018 Boundary Change Proposals are confirmed, then the land currently in Croxton Parish that lies inside the A11 will become part of Thetford Parish. A new Parish Ward called "Iceni" would then be created to cover this area, supplying two additional town councillors.
