The Local Government Boundary Commission for England has published its final recommendations in its review of Lancashire's Electoral Divisions. The new electoral arrangements for Lancashire have now been approved by Parliament and will be in place for the County Council elections on 4 May 2017.

The new electoral divisions, can now be viewed on the Council's Mario website under the 'Local Government Information' tab (found on the left hand side of the page)

Each division can also be viewed as an individual pdf map - please click here. Please click on the relevant district and then the name of the division you wish to view. You can use the zoom feature in Adobe Acrobat to enlarge each map and the scroll bars to move around the boundary of each division. You will see that some files are of a considerable size and may therefore take a while to download. The approximate size of each file is indicated in brackets.
