Ward changes[edit]

In 2002, the Electoral Commission ordered a re-organisation of wards in Caradon. The former wards were abolished and the district was divided into twenty-two new wards; and the parish of Liskeard was divided into two parish wards, Liskeard North and Liskeard South.

The change created 'Dobwalls and District' as a ward electing two councillors and incorporating the parishes of Dobwalls and Trewidland, Morval, St Keyne and St Pinnock.[4]
