Consultations underway

Banning dogs from children's play areas

We are proposing to ban dogs from a further 26 children’s play areas in West Lancashire in order to help keep children safe and reduce problems with dog fouling. We are also planning to require dogs to be kept on leads in five specified areas in public parks and playing fields. 

We are now seeking the views of local residents, visitors and organisations so your comments can be taken into account before final decisions are made.

Consultation on garages in Tanhouse and Digmoor

We would like your views on garages in Tanhouse and Digmoor. If the council refurbished the garages, would you be interested in renting a garage for household and garden items as well as vehicles? If not, what do you think we should do with the garages? Please send your views to lisa.west@westlancs.gov.uk.  Please send us your views no later than Friday 9 December 2016.

Interim Polling Review

In October 2016 the Polling Districts and Polling Places Review Committee decided to review the arrangements for the BEC Polling District within Burscough East Ward and also the WRD Polling District within Wrightington Ward. Submissions are now invited for the consultation on the initial proposals for polling district BEC and polling district WRD. This consultation runs from Thursday 24 November 2016 and finishes on Thursday 22 December 2016.

What do you think of our website?

We've updated our website with the aim of making it easier for customers to use. The new site is also easier to use on mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets. Please let us know what you think of our new site.

Have your say on housing

The council has always listened to and worked with tenants to ensure they're receiving a good service which is tailored to meet individual needs. We are constantly looking at how to improve the ways tenants can get involved and have their say on housing.

Forward Plan 

The Forward Plan lists "key" Cabinet decisions likely to be made over the next four months. These decisions may be made by the Cabinet or, occasionally, by individual members or officers of the Council acting under delegated authority. The plan is updated and rolled forward every month. It gives information about the subject involved and shows who will make the decision and when it will be made. The plan also gives information about any consultation prior to the decision being made and advice on how you can make representations.

Planning applications

You can give your views on any planning application on which a decision has not yet been made.
