Brandon and Byshottles

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Brandon and Byshottles is a civil parish and  electoral ward in County Durham, England. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 17,774 increasing to 18,509 at the 2011 Census.[1] The parish includes Brandon, New Brancepeth, Broompark, Langley Moor, Ushaw Moor, Meadowfield, Waterhouses and Esh Winning.

Unusually, the parish shares jurisdiction over a quarry south of Esh Winning with the neighbouring parish of Brancepeth.

For electoral purposes the parish is divided into wards

  • Central Ward (includes Brandon) - elects four parish councillors
  • East Ward (includes Langley Moor) - elects three parish councillors
  • North Ward (includes New Brancepeth) - elects three parish councillors
  • South Ward (includes Meadowfield and Browney) - elects three parish councillors
  • Ushaw Moor Ward (includes Ushaw Moor and Broompark) - elects four parish councillors
  • West Ward (includes Esh Winning and Waterhouses) - elects four parish councillors

Currently a majority of the Councillors were elected as Labour Party Candidates.

Brandon & Byshottles was established as a local government unit when it was established as a Local Board District in 1882. Brandon & Byshottles was reconstituted as an Urban District through the Local Government Act 1894. The Brandon & Byshottles Urban District Council was abolished in 1974 when the area became part of the (now abolished) City of Durham local government area. The Brandon & Byshottles Parish is co-terminous with the pre-1974 UDC area.
