Jump to: navigation, search

Elections to Lancashire County Council were held on 5 May 2005, on the same day as the 2005 general election.

Each single-member ward in Lancashire was modified by boundary changes. No elections were held in Blackpool or Blackburn as they are unitary authorities outside of the county boundaries.
