Woolton Village ward is an electoral district of Liverpool City Council within the Liverpool Wavertree 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 Woolton Village ward was created as a single-member ward from the southwestern half of the former Woolton ward.[1]

The ward boundaries follow Woolton Road, Rose Brow, Acrefield Road, Woolton High Street, Menlove Avenue, the northern boundary of Allerton Manor Golf Club, Yewtree Road, Beaconsfield Road, the boundary of St Francis Xavier's College, behind Aldbourne Close, and Aldbourne Avenue. The ward is part of the Woolton district of Liverpool, and includes the Black Woods, Reynold Park, and 251 Menlove Avenue.[1]
