Candidates line up for 5th May

John Freeman

(Updated 8/5/11): Here's a list of the candidates for the Lancaster City Council elections taking place on 5th May 2011. This list is sourced from a PDF on the Council web site: post election, addresses have been removed.

Since the last boundary changes in 2003, 60 councillors have been elected from 28 wards.

The Labour Party is fielding the most candidates, followed by the Conservatives and the Greens, with the Liberal Democrats almost pipped to the post by the Morecambe Bay Indpendents.

There are a number of 'returning' hopefuls in the list, including former Morecambe Bay Independent Council leader Tricia Heath and Labour's Bob Clark, seeking to get back as a councilor for Bulk. Former MBI and Winter Gardens supporter Evelyn Archer is standing as an independent.

Several candidates are listed as Lancaster University residents, suggesting high student involvement in this year's elections. 

There are also Parish elections and a referendum on the national voting system happening on the same day.
