Previous consultations

West Lancashire Open Space Survey

We ran two open space surveys between 18 October and 8 December 2017 - one for adults and one for primary school aged children. The surveys were to help audit existing open spaces in West Lancashire, including parks, recreation grounds, allotments, nature sites and play areas. We will use the findings of these surveys to produce a report which assesses open spaces in the area, identifies standards of provision, and make recommendations for the future. We expect the Open Space Study to be completed by March 2018. We will publish the final report at that time.

Spending the Community Infrastructure Levy

From 5 October - 3 November 2017, we asked you for your views on how we should spend our CIL receipts on strategic infrastructure.

We consulted on the draft 2017 SHELAA from 16 March to 28 April 2017.
