Issues - Background Papers

The Questionnaire

To help people fill in the questionnaire, we provided some background information for different parts of the district:

Spatial Forums

We started our general consultation on the LDF Core Strategy in June 2008 with a set of workshops at the Local Strategic Partnership annual conference. Following this, we held three open public meetings - 'spatial forums' - to discuss planning issues for West Lancashire. The feedback report below summarises the main points people made at these public meetings.

Background documents from the 2008 spatial forums
To focus discussion onto specific parts of West Lancashire, we divided the borough into three areas - northern, western and eastern parishes. For each area we provided maps illustrating the unique issues in each settlement.

Skelmersdale & Eastern Parishes (Including Newburgh, Parbold, Appley Bridge, Wrightington, Up Holland, Bickerstaffe, Simonswood and Lathom)

Ormskirk, Burscough and Western Parishes (Including Scarisbrick, Great Altcar, Halsall and Haskayne)

Northern Parishes (Including Tarleton, Hesketh Bank, Banks, Rufford, Mere Brow and Holmeswood)
