What is a ward?
A ward is a section of the city that has been established for electoral purposes. There are currently 35 of them in Bristol. Each ward is split up into polling districts each with its own polling station. Each ward has two electoral representatives, known as Councillors, who represent the interests of residents of the ward.
The addresses and post codes are from the Bristol City Council Electoral Registration system. Therefore, this is not a comprehensive list (for example some business addresses are not included).There are three ways to find information about a ward. The following options are listed in order of the speed of the search (fastest first).
If a postcode or address search displays more than one ward and you want to find out which ward your address is in use the 'By Address' search and enter the house number and street.
You can also find information about the Lower Level Super Output Areas (LSOAs) within Bristol City Council Ward Boundaries.
LSOAs are referred to in a number of different ways. Each LSOA has a code (eg E01014485), an ONS name (eg Bristol 023A) assigned by the Office for National Statistics and a local name (eg Mina Road) assigned by Bristol City Council and partners. This table will enable you to make links between these different codes/names and also which ward the LSOA falls within.
Alternatively if you want to find out which LSOA a postcode belongs to use the postcode search.

It should also be noted that the lists of leisure facilities are those held by the council and therefore are not necessarily a comprehensive list.
