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.Advertisement
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 West – Ingol and Lea
