About our ward

Farringdon Within is on the west of the City and has one of the more unusual layouts, shaped by hundreds of years of history, making it difficult to describe.

It's split into two administrative 'sides' - North and South - connected by narrow corridor of St. Edward's Street and Little Britain, with a Deputy and further three councillors for each, though all Members are elected to cover the whole ward.

Locations of businesses participating in the Community Toilets Scheme are marked by the blue logo.

As independent elected representatives, we freely volunteer our time.  We'd like to keep you informed and involved in as quick, easy and inexpensive way possible.  This often means collecting and using email addresses so that we can occasionally send you information on:

  • public meetings & consultations;

  • relevant licensing & planning applications;

  • City events; and

  • general news & information.

Please help us to help you, by allowing us to use your email address in this way.  You always have the option to opt-out of any email distribution list.
