Map of Broughton and surrounding areas

Broughton is situated to the north of the City of Preston. Primarily where the A6 towards Lancaster crosses the B5269 (Whittingham Lane), although the civil parish boundaries also take in sections of D'urton Lane, Haighton Green Lane and Eastway to the South.



Highways England is commencing a programme of works on the M55 eastbound carriageway between junction 4 and junction 1. Phase 1 is due to start on 14 May 2018 from junction 4 to junction 3 for a duration of 2 weeks.

The Independent Examiner has requested answers to clarify points in the draft Neighbourhood Plan.

A casual vacancy has arisen on the Parish Council and the statutory period of the applications has now expired. So we are now seeking to fill this vacancy by asking for volunteers.

Lancashire County Council has considered the concerns raised by Broughton Parish Council in relation to excessive speed of vehicles on Whittingham Lane. Additional measures are therefore now proposed for this location.

The Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents will go to the examiner tomorrow, the 25th April 2018.
