Lancashire County Council elections 2009: Preston candidates

On June 4th 2009 the people of Preston will go to the polls to elect the people who will represent them at Lancashire County Council.

The list of candidates standing in Preston covers the following County Council wards: Preston Central North, Preston Central South, Preston City, Preston East, Preston North, Preston North East, Preston North West, Preston Rural, Preston South East, Preston West.

To me those ward names mean nothing, so here’s the areas that are included in those wards:

Preston Central North – College, Moor Park and Deepdale

Preston Central South – Tulketh, University campus and St Georges

Preston City – Riversway (includes the docks, Broadgate and Christchurch Street area) and Town Centre (it’s weird how it’s the city ward but the County Council refer to it as the town centre, should this be updated?)

Preston East – Brookfield and Ribbleton

Preston North – Cadley and Greyfriars

Preston North East – Garrison and Sharoe Green

Preston North West – Larches and Ashton

Preston Rural – Grimsagh, Haighton, Broughton, Woodplumpton, Barton, Whittingham and Goosnargh

Preston South East – St Matthews and Fishwick

Preston West – Ingol and Lea

Polling stations are open from 7 AM to 10 PM on the day. You can register to receive the results by email.

If you have any questions about the elections, you can contact Preston’s elections officer on 01772 906 115 or s.e.harrison@preston.gov.uk or visit About My Vote.

  1. Some of the candidates from Preston and South Ribble will be appearing in a special Election Debate tomorrow evening (Thurs 28th May) at Preston DISC on Church St.

    The debate will be recorded for broadcast on Preston FM (on demand via the web, and on-air a number of times over the following week).
