Over 25 Years of

Planning Success



The Central Lancashire Core Strategy was adopted in July 2012. 

Produced by Preston, South Ribble and Chorley councils, with assistance from Lancashire county council, its aim is to help co-ordinate development in the area and contribute to boosting employment and investment. It will encourage sustainable managed growth, whilst protecting and enhancing green spaces and access to open countryside.

The Chorley Local Plan provides the spatial planning outline for the area. Chorley Borough Council is responsible for a range of planning and environmental issues including nine conservation areas and environmental health.

There is an extensive countryside within the Chorley Borough Council area much being Green Belt.

Green Belts are a fundamental element of national planning policy a highly relevant in the Chorley Borough area. They check the unrestricted sprawl of large built-up areas; prevent neighbouring towns from merging into one another; assist in safeguarding the countryside, preserve the character of historic towns and encourage the recycling of derelict and other urban land. Chorley has a very high proportion (71.8%) of its land designated as Green Belt.

The legacy of former mine workings in the area was highlighted in 2015, when the coal authority published development risk plans and specific risk plans that included a set for Chorley district.

These issues (and others) all need to be considered when contemplating developments requiring Planning Permission in the Chorley area.

Ashall Town Planning can provide professional planning advice and assistance for your development in the Chorley area.
