Proposed Combined Authority for Lancashire


Over recent days, residents may have followed a discussion in the regional news about whether agreement had been reached for new local government arrangements in the County. It was originally reported that all district councils in Lancashire had agreed to the creation of a new "combined authority" led by an elected mayor. However, these reports seem to have been premature and the parish council understands that no formal agreement to proceed with a new authority / elected mayor has yet been reached.


Whilst the parish council has not reached a formal view on the merits of this proposal, members are keen to encourage residents to have their say on this issue. It is suggested that residents with strong opinions on the matter (whether for or against) may wish make their views known to Nigel Evans MP. Mr Evans can be contacted via his website page at:

In addition, or alternatively, for residents opposed to the proposal there is an online petition at Change.org.uk:
