Community Futures has been working closely with Broughton Parish Council to help plan and prepare the village's Neighbourhood Plan. Community Futures is a not-for-profit organisation which works across Lancashire to provide services that support, develop and sustain community life.

Work began several weeks ago and has resulted in an extensive consultation process being undertaken, which has been assisted by specialist support from Community Futures.

Collation of the data from this consultation is due to begin in the coming weeks and this will result in all residents having a chance to have their say in the ways in which the locality evolves moving forward.

If anyone would like further information on the neighnourhood planning process or the assistance being offred by Community Futures, please contact the CF Head Office on 01772 717461.
