St Annes residents are being urged to have their say about the future look of the town.
The Town Council is producing a Neighbourhood Plan to work hand-in-hand with the Fylde Local Plan, and is holding a series of consultation events to gauge the public’s ideas.
St Annes is one of the first town councils in the north to take up the option of preparing such a plan, a result of the Government’s Localism Act, and town clerk Sally Taylor said: “There is currently outline planning permission for some 1,800 homes at various sites across St Annes, and if we have the Neighbourhood Plan in place to work alongside the Fylde Local Plan, we can help influence what the developments look like and what facilities they include.
“The sooner we get this plan in place, the sooner we can have a say about the future of the town, and we need as much public feedback as possible to help us achieve that.”
Town Council representatives will be at the Memorial Hall, St Albans Road, next Thursday, May 22 from 2pm to 6pm and the covered domes in St Annes Square on Saturday, May 24 from 11am to 2pm.
