26 Oct West Lancashire Borough Council launches Proposed Local plan 2012-2050
West Lancashire Borough Council has revealed its proposals for the future of the borough until 2050.
The proposed Preferred Options document suggests a Local Plan that will help deliver exciting new development to support the growth of the Borough until 2050, in particular around the Borough’s two largest towns of Skelmersdale and Ormskirk.
A total of 180 hectares (445 acres) of employment space is proposed to be created, while the plans also raise the possibility of additional primary schools to meet the new demand.
“By planning so far into the future, the Local Plan gives greater certainty about where development will take place over the next 30 years. It will enable the Council to better manage new development in a way that creates more sustainable communities, provides homes for all parts of the community and takes advantage of opportunities emerging from the anticipated economic growth, including those stimulated by the expanded Port of Liverpool.”
John Harrison, Director of Development and Regeneration at West Lancashire Borough Council
