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
