Local Elections – Thursday 4th May 2023

About local elections

Town and Parish councillors play an important role in their communities and the elections for the 10 town and parish councils in Sefton take place every 4 years. Thornton is one of the 10 town and parish councils of Sefton, and within Thornton Parish Council there are 7 seats.

Councillors are elected for a four year term on an “all out” basis i.e. all the seats on a parish council are elected at the same time so all seats are up for election in the 10 parishes.

If you need further information please contact the Town/Parish Clerk for your area.
