Referendum, Borough and Parish Election Results 2011
Elections were held in 21 out of the borough's 24 wards, with candidates in three wards: Gisburn and Rimington, Mellor and Ribchester, returned uncontested.
The elections attracted a 44.9 per cent turnout and resulted in the election of 33 Conservatives, six Liberal Democrats and one Independent.
As such, the Conservatives now have the highest number of seats on the council and are therefore the ruling group.
