Consultations

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.​​​​​​​​​​​​​

  • Electoral Review

    The Local Government Boundary Commission for England (the Commission) are conducting an electoral review of Chorley Council.
     
    At the moment there are 20 wards which are served by a mixture of 1, 2 or 3 councillors. As part of the review, the number of borough wards is likely to be reduced to 14, consisting of three councillors per ward. The purpose of this is to try to improve electoral equality across the borough.

    To view the Commission’s draft ward proposals and to have your say click on the link to the Local Government Boundary Commission consultation under the ‘Useful Links’ heading.
     
    The consultation will close on 14 January 2019.

  • Statement of Community Involvement 2019

    Chorley Council is required to produce a Statement of Community Involvement (SCI), which sets out how the Council will involve community groups, stakeholders and other organisations in the preparation and review of planning policy documents, and in the consideration of planning applications. The current SCI was adopted by the Council in 2014 and this is now being updated to reflect changes in the planning system.

    Chorley Council is undertaking a public consultation on the Draft SCI, during which time comments are invited on its content.

    The Draft SCI is available to download using the link on this page.

    If you have any comments on the Draft SCI, please send them to the Planning Policy Team by 5pm on Friday 15th February 2019. ​

    You can send comments:
    • By email to: planning.policy@chorley.gov.uk​
    • By post to: Planning Policy Team, c/o Chorley Council, Civic Offices, Union Street, Chorley, PR7 1AL.

    The Council will consider the responses to this consultation in finalising the SCI for adoption in Spring 2019.
