Pendle Borough Council

Councillors, democracy and elections

You can find information on your local councillor, elections, voting, how the Council works, and how you can get involved.

There are 49 councillors in Pendle and the present composition of the Council is:

19 Conservative; 17 Labour; 11 Liberal Democrats; 1 British National Party and 1 vacancy due to the resignation of Richard Smith (Clover Hill).  The vacancy will be filled at the next ordinary election of councillors on Thursday, 7th May 2015

This means that Pendle is a council where no one party has overall control.

The Conservative and Liberal Democrat Councillors have reached an agreement which will see the two parties share control of the Council's executive portfolios for the next twelve months.

Both groups will take a number of places on the shared executive proportional to their seats on the Council. This will equate to six Conservative and four Liberal Democrats portfolio holders.

The two groups have issued a list of shared objectives for the next twelve months, but have not signed a coalition agreement. Both parties have retained the right to promote their own distinctive policies.
