Edgbaston ward is a local government district, one of 40 wards that make up Birmingham City Council. Edgbaston lies to the south west of Birmingham city centre and is home to the University of Birmingham and the Queen Elizabeth hospital. The ward population at the 2011 census was 24,426.[1]

Ward Description[edit]

The ward covers an area of west Birmingham, including the districts of Edgbaston and parts of Ladywood. It also covers areas around the University Hospital.

The ward was created in 1838, and has been a ward ever since.

The boundary changes of 1950, transferred an area east of the railway line and north of Church Rd and Priory Rd, was transferred to Market Hall ward. To compensate for the loss of electorate, the ward was extended westwards to take in areas of north Harborne.

The boundary changes of 1962 so a reverse of the 1950 changes. The areas south of Lea Bank and Belgrave Roads from the Market Hall ward. Once again to balance the electorate, the area north of the Hagley Road close to the city boundary at Bearwood, and the area of northern Harborne which had been acquired in 1950 were transferred to Harborne ward.

Politics[edit]

The Edgbaston ward is currently represented by three Conservative Councillors; James Hutchings (1991-), Deirdre Alden (1999-) and Fergus Robinson (2002-).
