City Centre ward was a ward of the local authority Manchester City Council from 2004 to 2018. The population of the city centre grew significantly in the 21st century. Therefore as recommended by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE), the ward was replaced in May 2018 with two new electoral wards, Deansgate and Piccadilly.[1]

It is represented in Westminster by Lucy Powell Labour Co-op MP for Manchester Central.[2]
