Toxteth ward is an electoral district of Liverpool City Council within the Liverpool Riverside constituency.


2023 ward

The ward was created for the elections held on 4 May 2023 following a 2022 review by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England, which decided that the previous 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. The Toxteth ward was created as a single-member ward from the western half of the former Princes Park ward and part of the former Riverside ward.[1] The ward boundaries follow Upper Parliament Street, Princes Road, Devonshire Road, Admiral Street, North Hill Street, and Park Road.[1]
