Have your say in this years Local Elections

Elections are being held across the country today (6th May) and on Buckshaw Village and the surrounding area we will be asked to vote for a representative for the following positions:


• Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Lancashire

• County Councillor

• Borough Councillors



With regards to the Borough election, the area of Buckshaw Village that falls under Chorley Council will from now on be part of the new Buckshaw & Whittle ward. This change has come about following a review of the boundary areas and of the population represented by Councillors.


It is important to know that the new ward does not mean a change in village boundary; it is simply a means of giving a title to an area to identify a Councillor’s area of responsibility. At the Borough election you will have the opportunity to vote for up to 3 candidates. You do not have to use all 3 votes but you can vote for up to 3 people who you feel best meet either your political persuasion or would best represent you and your community. On the right hand side of this page we have listed all this year’s candidates for the Buckshaw & Whittle ward at the Borough Election.
