Public Consultation on the Issues and Options for a new Local Plan for Central Lancashire from Monday 18 November 2019 to Friday 14 February 2020.


Have your say in the first stage of the Issues and Options Consultation to talk about a new Local Plan for Central Lancashire. Once agreed, this new plan will supersede the Core Strategy and the three Local Plans for Chorley, Preston and South Ribble. It is a very important consultation for the future of Chorley borough.  


The Planning Officers need your help to make sure we have a plan for Central Lancashire that creates good quality places to live, work and relax over the next 15 years to 2036.   How do you think the area can be improved for future generations?  


How can the impacts of climate change be reduced by being carbon neutral by 2030?  


What are your views on the Council’s proposed list of site suggestions for Chorley?


The poster tells you how to get involved to have your say.

The Second Act of Remembrance of the sons of Heath Charnock Parish who lost their lives due to World Wars 1 and 2


On Sunday 10 November 2019 Heath Charnock Parish Council, two local military historians, family, and Parishioners gathered to remember and to name the men from Heath Charnock Parish who died due to World Wars 1 and 2.  


Thanks to the research carried out by John Garwood for World War 1 and Stuart Clewlow for World War 2, Heath Charnock Parish Council has been able to list the names of the fallen on the plaque on the Parish Gateway Stone.
