East Suffolk Council

This is a new non-metropolitan district, formed from two merged councils. As the council has never elected councillors before, our change figures will be based upon "notional results" - predictions on what the results would have been had the council existed at the time of the last election. More about how we work out seat change here.

The local authority said it was "to help support our local key workers and community volunteers during the COVID-19 outbreak".

Councillor Norman Brooks, cabinet member for transport, said: "As well as supporting our wider communities throughout this crisis, our priority must be to make life as simple as possible for the frontline key workers and volunteers and we hope that this small step can make a difference.
