Full list of Rochford District Council election candidates 2016


rochford district council

I don’t tend to pay as much attention to Rochford on this blog as perhaps I ought, given that it’s the neighbouring district to Southend and part of it is within the Rochford & Southend East ward.

But this year Rochford is electing all of its councillors at once, owing to the boundaries being redrawn. This happens periodically, to take account of changes in population distribution, and the prevailing trend currently is to move to all-up elections rather than electing in thirds (Not a trend which your blogger is enamoured of -Ed).

So that means that there are thirteen wards electing three councillors each, meaning a total of 39 seats up for grabs.

Meet the candidates…
