Possibly it originally came under Prenton and Egerton ward boundary and they made a mistake saying park

Boundary maps click
and election maps click

The site refuses to find me, despite my road being clearly on the map. I've searched using the exact wording given on the map as well as variations, but it gives "no results". I can only conclude that I am so important to the security services that they don't want anyone to find me. nono

I used an asterix after the streets/road first name
church* road
and that worked

Thanks for the tip. I tried entering the street name + asterisk and instead of coming up with "no result" it gave me two streets in different parts of the country but not mine. I wouldn't mind, but my street is on the map and named, so why can't the system find it?

Stupid system. It says that, although it's not case sensitive, it is punctuation sensitive. My address has an apostrophe in it: if I use the apostrophe, the system doesn't find it but if I omit the apostrophe (incorrectly), it finds it.
