Residents, service users and local organisations are invited to give their views on the Private Sector Housing Strategy 2017-2020. The new strategy sets the aims and objectives for improving standards in the private housing sector. The closing date for comments is 18 November 2016.

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.

Planning policy consultation

A range of consultation exercises are carried out. The Planning Policy Consultation page provides information about current planning policy consultations and how you can get involved.

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.

Planning policy consultation

A wide range of consultations are carried out. For more information or to join the consultation database, please visit consultation on planning policy
