Ribble Valley goes to the polls in borough and parish elections on Thursday, May 2nd.

Ninety-four out of 96 candidates will be vying for 38 seats on Ribble Valley Borough Council.

The Conservatives and Labour have put forward the highest number of candidates, 40 and 35 respectively, while the Liberal Democrats are fielding 16, the Green Party two and UKIP one, along with two independents.

The two borough wards of Bowland and Chipping attracted just one candidate each, Conservatives Rosie Elms and Simon Hore respectively, who will therefore be automatically elected.

There will also be parish elections in Balderstone; Bolton-by-Bowland, Gisburn Forest and Sawley; Clayton-le-Dale, Mellor, Read, Salesbury; Slaidburn and Easington, as well as the Edisford and Low Moor; Littlemoor, Primrose, St Mary’s and Salthill wards of Clitheroe, and Derby in Longridge.
