County council elections 2017

The county council is asking people to consider if they could be a councillor ahead of next year's county elections.

Lancashire County Council is holding local elections in May 2017 and new candidates are needed to represent their areas. There will be 84 seats available to cover the 12 Lancashire district areas, including six in Burnley borough.

Jo Turton, Chief Executive of Lancashire County Council said:

"If you care about the area that you live or work in and the issues facing local people, we need you.

"You don't need any special qualifications or experience to be a county councillor, skills gained through raising a family, volunteering or being active in faith or community groups can be just as valuable. The role is a privileged position which allows you to make a real difference to people's daily lives.
