Its all change in Chorley as the town faces the first look at its new political future in the May 6 local elections.

The election marks the first vote for Chorley Borough Council following a boundary review in 2018/19.

Then, the Local Government Boundary Commission for England undertook a review of the council to improve electoral equality by making its wards have roughly the same population.

It saw the number of councillors reduced from 42 to 47 and the number of council wards reduced from 20 to 14.

Chorley Council usually elects a third of councillors every year for three years.

But due to the boundary changes, every seat is up for grabs this time around.

Prior to May 6 the council was run by the Labour group, with Councillor Alistair Bradley the leader of the council.

Here is every new ward across Chorley that will see councillors elected to them:

- Adlington & Anderton
