We are keen to ensure that our services are tailored specifically to the needs of our customers - and to do that, we need to know exactly what you want.

We carry out consultations with customers throughout the year - most notably when we're planning the budget and want to know your views on where we should be allocating resources.

Our teams often carry out consultations to help improve the way services are delivered. You can view the consultations online.​​​​​​​​​​​​​

  • Central Lancashire Open Space Surveys

    Chorley Council is working to better understand open space provision across the district. The study will examine the quality, distribution and role of open spaces and will feed into a Central Lancashire wide study in partnership with South Ribble and Preston Councils.

    This survey is being undertaken again in order to increase the response rate as we value our customers and stakeholders input.

    Please complete the following survey to tell us about the open spaces you visit, what you think of their quality and accessibility, how often you use them and what improvements could be made. The results of this survey will be used as part of the study and will serve as a key evidence base to inform future strategic planning and decision-making processes for open space.

    ​All responses will be treated in the strictest confidence and no personal information will be used for any commercial purposes. This survey closes on Friday 17 August 2018.

  • Local Government Boundary Commission for England Electoral Review of Chorley Council

    The Local Government Boundary Commission for England is currently undertaking an electoral review of Chorley Council. The aim of the electoral review is to
    • Improve elector equality
    • Each councillor representing approximately the same number of voters
    • That the new ward boundaries reflect community identities
    • Promote local government

    On 26 June the Commission launched a public consultation on the re-mapping of the ward boundaries (which has been reduced from 20 to 14) and would be keen to hear from interested groups or individuals about how the new ward boundaries should look. The deadline for submissions is 3 September 2018.

  • Local Plan Review - Have Your Say

    The Central Lancashire Local Plan team is tasked with the delivery of the Local Plan Review, managing the project on behalf of Chorley, South Ribble and Preston councils. ​​

    This plan determines where and what development will be permitted by the councils and is linked to wider strategic objectives including housing, employment, open space and the economy.  ​

    In a move to proactively manage Central Lancashire’s future needs, a ‘Call for Sites’ consultation has been launched across the three districts, which is the first stage of the Review.

    Individuals, developers or any interested p​arties, are invited to submit details of sites available for development over the next 15 years.

    The sites can be any size or type; including occupied; vacant, derelict or undeveloped land. Proposals can be for any type of land use, including residential, commercial, retail, leisure or recreation.

    You do not need to own the site to submit it to the team, but details must be submitted via a response form available on the central local plan website here where you can also find more information. You can also contact us for copies of the Call for Sites form on 01257 515555 or​
