Labour's Cllr Clive Morgan will be seeking re-election. The former Falklands War veteran and Goose Green resident is defending a majority of 1,186.
Cllr Clive Morgan said, "It has been an honour to represent the area in which I live. We have achieved a lot together including the victory to retain Winstanley's green belt boundaries and I am proud to have supported local sports and community groups."
"The CAP, UKIP and Conservatives have all snubbed local people by picking candidates who do not even live in the ward they are seeking to represent."
The local election will be held on Thursday, 22nd May. The European election will also take place on this date so voters will receive two ballot papers to complete.
