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.​​​​​​​​​​​​​
  • Budget Consultation

    We are looking to finalise our plans for the 2019/20 budget and we want to know your views on our plans.
    It’s really important that we spend the money you pay in council tax on the things that matter the most to you, your family and your community.

    The council continues to deal with huge financial pressures and our budget proposals set out how we plan to address these challenges while continuing to protect, improve and invest in services.
    A summary of the changes and the full detail are available in the council papers are available to download, under the ‘do it online’ section on the right hand side.
    Please take time to read through the documents and we would encourage you to have your say on how and where the budget is spent, which will directly inform the final decision that will be made by Council on Tuesday 26th February 2019.
    Please provide your views on the proposals by completing our online survey located here​ or under the ‘Useful Links’ section on the right hand side.
    The consultation will run from Monday 21st January to Sunday 10th February 2019.
    Paper copies of the survey can also be made available on request by contacting 01257 515151.

  • Central Lancashire Local Plan Call for Sites

    The Call for Sites (parts one and two) is the first stage of the Central Lancashire Local Plan, a jointly funded partnership of Chorley, Preston and South Ribble Councils to deliver one Local Plan for the area of Central Lancashire. It asks organisations and the public to submit land that would be suitable for future development of housing, infrastructure, employment land, public spaces and amenities. We are especially interested in small housing or commercial sites; there is no minimum size for the hectarage of submitted sites and anyone may submit one to us, anyone who has already submitted a site to us in Part 1 does not need to submit this again. Anyone can submit sites to us by completing the Call for Sites form at the link below.

    The consultation will run from Monday 28th January – 8th April 2019.

  • Draft Housing Strategy 2019-2024

    We have recently published a draft Housing Strategy for 2019 to 2024 and want to find out people's views. The strategy aims to pull together the work the council does around housing issues, as well as setting out its ambitions and priorities for the coming years. An action plan has also been developed to set out work that the council will undertake over the next 18 months. It will not include all the work we do. Instead, it concentrates on the key areas for focus.

    You can find the strategy on this page. 

    If you have any comments, you can email them to​ with the subject line 'housing strategy'. 

    The consultation closes on 22 March 2019.
