The Conservative commitment to Chorley

OUR VISION FOR CHORLEY will deliver a Borough that works for you and your family

There is so much potential across our borough, that’s why I’m proud to put forward this positive and practical vision for our area. My team and I have been out listening to views across our towns and villages to put together a
plan with you at its heart.

Our plan can deliver a town that encourages more unique retailers, backs local businesses and offers you the choice and flexibility to shop and trade. Whilst being rightly proud of our traditional market heritage.

We want our area to be a destination for culture and entertainment; offering families and visitors a great night-out, championing our stunning rural areas and showcasing our unique villages.

Our borough is a place of innovation and enterprise. That’s why we’ll make sure the next generation have the skills they need to get on in life with good quality school places, apprenticeships to earn and learn and digital
facilities fit for the future.

I’m sure you’ll agree that Chorley is a great place to live, work and raise a family. There is a need for housing, but not at the expense of our green spaces. Our plan offers affordable and practical developments that work for us, with the schools, surgeries and transport links to cope.

This plan is so important for our area, because at the local elections in May, you and your neighbours will get the chance to decide the future of Chorley.

If you support our plan and vote Conservative in May, I’m confident we can lead a council that listens and delivers on a plan shaped by you.

Take a look through this magazine and if you support our vision for Chorley, or want to share your views, you can do so by visiting our website and completing the survey.

I look forward to hearing from you.
