Towards the end of 2013, the Parish Council circulated a questionnaire to all residents seeking views on what defines our villages, what it is important to safeguard, and what future development is desirable.
All 504 responses received have now been analysed, and a Parish Plan has been finalised.
Lancashire Best Kept Village Competition
Belmont, Chapeltown and Edgworth were each to be entered into the 2016 competition.
Judging will take place during June. Unfortunately, no awards were given to North Turton.
In 2014, Belmont came 5th (out of 17 entries) in the small village category; Edgworth came 8th (out of 18) in the large village category. Chapeltown did not appear in the top eight.
