The ward was formed from the former Pirrie, Clubmoor, Fazakerley and Gillmoss wards.[1]

The ward boundaries followed Lower Lane, Lower House Lane, Dwerryhouse Lane, Muirhead Avenue East, Lorenzo Drive, Parthenon Drive, Stopgate Lane, Long Lane, around Bank View High School and the southern boundary of the Joe Stone Playing Fields.[1]

The population of the 2004 ward at the 2021 census of 19,610.[2]

2023 boundaries

The ward boundaries were changed in 2023 following a review by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England which decided that the existing 30 wards each represented by three Councillors should be replaced by 64 wards represented by 85 councillors with varying representation by one, two or three councillors per ward.[3]

The Norris Green ward remained a three-member ward, losing the area north of the East Lancashire Road to the new Fazakerley West ward, and gaining a section of the former Clubmoor ward to the east of the North Liverpool Extension Line. The ward boundaries follow Walton Hall Avenue, Lower House Lane, Muirhead Avenue, the North Liverpool Extension Line, Townsend Avenue and Parthenon Drive.[3]

The population of the ward at the 2021 census was 17,320.[4]

Councillors

The ward has returned eleven councillors.[5]
